A hint of retro with a touch of steampunk, the flipbookit is a Kickstarter project that lets you build your own little mechanical flipbooks based on the originals seen at Maker Fair 2012.

Kinetic artists, Mark Rosen and Wendy Marvel create moving art that tells stories and tickles our sense of nostalgia. In late 2011, their series of motorized flipbooks based on the motion studies of Edweard Muybridge began touring with galleries, art shows and at special events internationally. MAKE magazine is featuring the artists in their January issue and a few of the boxes were on display at Maker Fair 2012.
