This 'Bioscope' is a movie projector inspired by the old device of the same name, but with a twist for the 21st Century. The 'Bioscope' was created by Jon Stam & Simon de Bakker, and inspired by vintage films and viral YouTube sensations like the 'Numa Numa Kid' and 'Charlie Bit My Finger.'

The body of the device has a nostalgic form but its interior is entirely digital. It has a USB port for playback of digital clips and animations. The Bioscope is very simple: by cranking its handle, the movie playback is varied by how fast the handle is turned, and can even be reversed by cranking backwards. This handheld device forces its users to engage in the video they are watching.
