Paper Abstract

This paper presents an upgrade of the thaumatrope, an optical toy and a pre-cinematographic animation device that was popular in the 19th century, by addition of ultra-realistic full-color holograms. It explains the working principles of this new device and evaluates its performances. To build this new kind of thaumatrope, two full-color analog transplane holograms of two different 3D objects are recorded with the silver halide color holographic material Ultimate 04 and mounted on each side of a rotating disc. The operation of the holographic thaumatrope is successfully demonstrated. When two pieces of string are attached to the disc are twirled quickly between the fingers, the disc rotates on its axis and the two transplane holograms appear to combine into one.
