Dan Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland of "opto-musical agglomerate" Sculpture created the cool kaleidoscope for Plastic Infinite. The animation reveals itself only when viewed with a strobe beating at 25 flashes per second or if it's filmed at a rate of 25 frames per second.

So mesmerising. Super neat. More zoetropes! [PSFK]
