Mobile Studio creates super-sized mechanical flipbooks

  • Comment

London-based Mobile Studio Architects has created a series of giant mechanical flipbooks as part of a summer school in New Hampshire, USA

The interactive installations, which were built as part of a summer camp for 10 to 17-year-olds, scale up the split-flap display technology first used in airport and train station destination boards across the world to create a series of over-sized flipbooks. 

Entitled Universal Play Machine, the five structures rotate through more than 500 still images that were created by the campers to display animated depictions of the behaviour of birds in the forest.
