 FlipBooKit DIY Flipbook Machine

There's something about the flicker of an old movie and the click-click-click of the film that makes our brains go to a very happy place. We love everything about the experience. It's why we draw flipbooks in the margins of our notepads (and make our own click-click-click when we flip them back). But now there's a classier way, a more DIY-ier way, to show off our love of the flickers. It's called the FlipBooKit DIY Flipbook Machine, and it's a magic chunk of awesome.

First, you'll need to put together your FlipBooKit DIY Flipbook Machine. It's really easy and will be ready for viewing in no time. It comes with one already printed flipbook (a horse galloping), but also the stuff to build a few of your own. Keep your FlipBooKit DIY Flipbook Machine on your desk or hang it on the wall (there's a hole on the back for that). You could even (easily) adapt it into a motorized unit. We'd love to write more, but we have some click-click-click to listen to, as we watch that rascally horse run some more. FlipBooKit DIY Flipbook Machine - all the joy of super old time movies, without the threat of Edison coming in to bust up your stuff.
