Toy praxinoscope driven by a hot-air engine. The praxinoscope is one of the earliest generations of pre-film equipment that use sequences to evoke movement by optical illusion. The praxinoscope was an improvement on the zootrope, which in turn surpassed Joseph Plateau’s phenakistiscope, the first scientific invention to present moving images by means of illusion.
