Eadweard Muybridge's zoopraxiscope

"Now this (unlike this) is a real zoopraxiscope disc, invented by Eadweard (supposedly pronounced Edward but I always pronounce it Ierdwierd) Muybridge in 1893 and introduced to great fanfare at the Chicago Columbian Exhibition. There's also an animation of the kicking mule, which can be found here."
