Wildcat Thaumatrope

Idea
Make a thaumatrope using Arduino and a DC motor.

Prototypes
a) I began by checking if the speed rotation was enough to make it possible:

b) Then I tested a 3-faced version. But it didn’t work.cat_00

c) I decided to test one that would animate the image, instead of just mixing it. It didn’t work out as I planned, though:

d) So I stick to the idea of mixing two images. I draw this cat in an iPad, transfer it to paper and then to the final boards.
