This 3D Light Show Is Mesmerizing 1000s With Stunning “Dancing” Illusions.

Some things are worth a second look, and zoetropes are among them! Dating back to the 1800s, these cylindrical devices create the illusion of motion with a rotating sequence of drawings or pictures. And they’re still mesmerizing people today!

One modern version of a zoetrope has thousands dropping their jaws and reaching for the replay button. Made with a 3D printer, the device features transparent filament and light-based patterns. At first, they appear to be random shapes, but when you notice what’s actually happening, you can’t unsee it!

Prepare to marvel at the “dancing” lights below, and share to amaze your friends, too!
