A Retro Hand-Powered Movie Projector That Plays Digital Videos



In a collaboration between Netherlands-based Simon de Bakker and Jon Stam, the ‘Bioscope’ is a small, hand-held device that plays a digital video by rotating the handle.

Inspired by an old movie projector of the same name, the ‘Bioscope’ allows memories to be experienced in “relative time” and forces us to engage with what we are watching.

A digital video is loaded via USB port and is animated, forward or backward, frame by frame, depending on the speed and direction of the handle’s rotation.
