3D Animated Bookmarks by Emotion Gallery, These are amazing gifts.

Whilst in Waterstones Bookshop, something caught my eye, Initialy I thought it was some mini LCD dsiplays but then I walked over to the
display and was gobsmacked to see it was actually some very clever 3D animated bookmarks.
These are made by Emotion Gallery. The display consisted of several of these bookmarks mounted onto a rotating drum, because the angle of the
book mark was changing as it rotated it made the bookmarks come to life.

These are known as Lenticular 3D animated bookmarks, the quality of these is mind blowing.

Its hard to beleive that these are not LCD screen as the multi-frame animation looks so damn good.
It would appear that each animation is made up from several frames. The frames show in sequence as the angle of the bookmark is rotated.
These bookmarks are also available from Amazon, you can get all sorts of animated sequences.

Here is my video showing how clever these animated bookmarks look. You have to be impressed by this !
