The Magic Lantern is an image projector using pictures on sheets of glass. Since some sheets contain moving parts, it is considered the first example of projected animation.
The thaumatrope housed a rotating mechanism with a different
picture on each side.
When rotated, you saw a combined picture (known as persistence of vision).
The phenakitoscope featured spinning disks reflected in
made it seem like the pictures were moving.
The zoetrope was a hollow drum that housed images on long interchangeable
strips that spin and made the images appear to move.
The flip-book, also known as the kineograph, reached a wide
audience and is credited
with inspiring early animators more than the machines developed in this era.
The praxinoscope expanded on the zoetrope, using multiple
wheels to rotate images.
It is considered to have shown the first prototypes of the animated cartoon.
