Help me find this optical illusion....

This was done at a show I saw. You have a circle of statues that are in various stages of the same "act" and you rotate the circle. It just appears to spin rapidly. Then you put a strobe light on it, and you see individual people seeming to stand in the same place, but moving.

hope that makes sense. I want to buy something like that.

Any help?

Paging Leonardo Da Vinci* to thread #434387.

* or the Blue Man Group






Do you want the statues, and have a large stage to fill? Or just the effect.

The Ghibli Museum has something like that. Dunno if it has a name.

That is it. I would like the "home version" of such a thing.
