In the first century BC, the Chinese craftsman Ding Huan invented a zoetrope-like optical device that created the impression of motion from the rapid movement of static images. A circular canopy of translucent paper painted with images of birds and animals was placed over a lamp. The rising convection currents of the lamp rotated the vanes on the top of the canopy. When the device was spun at the right speed, pictures painted on the panels would appear to move.
