Ocean State Maker Mill member Kelly Egan’s PonyTrope is a Thingiverse Featured item today!  Maybe you saw it in action at World Maker Faire NYC in September?

Kelly’s 3D Zoetrope uses 3D models and a strobe light to replace 2D image frames and a cylinder with slits.

Download the 3D model files to make your very own PonyTrope from Thingiverse, or check out the full writeup and video in action on Kelly’s site.
