PHENAKISTASCOPES, FUCK YEAH!

The kids of today have some pretty neat technologically advanced toys to play with. But the robot wireless vegan dog ain't got shit on Phenakistoscopes! The Victorian optical illusion toy invented by Joseph Palteau has been revived and made into gifs for our viewing pleasure. Check out this tumblr for more old toys made into gifs, taken from the Richard Balzer Collection. It's not at all filled with politically incorrect and dark disconcerting imagery. 

 

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
