Rotating/revolving bookcase

I wonder if you could offer any advice on this idea of mine.  I’m looking to design/make a bookshelf that revolves.  Like this TV on one side and books on the other.  The setup I want to make isn’t the same as this, but the mechanism would be exactly the same.  Any ideas on how to DIY this?  ​The space I have to do it is 16" deep, 39" wide and about 50" high

I've searched around and can't find any info on where to buy the brackets/arms/runners that may be needed.  There are also wall beds that do the same thing on a much larger scale - but the process in principal is the same.

I feel like the solution is fairly simple, but I don’t know where to start.  Any help would be brilliant, thanks.  This guy looks like he'd know how to do it

This seems to show the mechanism the best

Do you think it's possible to DIY with store bought components?
