Amazing Animated Optical Illusions!

Some call the method ‘scanimation.’  Each animation in the above video consists of six repeating frames.  All six frames are contained within the underlying sheet, but when the plastic overlay — made up of fixed-width black bars — is passed over it, the bars perfectly align with each frame for a moment in time, creating what appears to be a complete image. The animation can be played backward simply by passing the overlay in the other direction.
