Spring is coming

Now that the speed control finally works, we promptly decided to test it out with a actual Phyllo.

Here’s a video of a Phyllo spinning at 11.45 RPS and then 18.54 RPS filmed with a 30 FPS phone camera.

In order to shorten the exposition time to reduce motion blur, the Phyllo needs to be as illuminated as possible. Since today was not sunny (just another day in Saclay…), we borrowed a spotlight from the design studio next door.

We really like the transition effects when changing speeds, so we’ll try to incorporate them in our panel of animations 🙂
