modify cd player to zoetrope Answered
i am looking to modify a portable cd player into a zoetrope. this is fairly easy to do, but i have zero electronics knowledge and thought it would be good to ask if it is even possible.
here is an old zoetrope
i just looking for a one second loop of animation to occur.
cds spin at about 500 rpm - which when you do the math is about 8x too fast. so how can i modify the cd player to slow down?
i know that i could get a strobe light and try variations on the strobe, but since the rate of cd player spin alters from center to far edge (goes more slowly) the strobe light would quickly get out of sync.
any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
