A chocolate zoetrope seems like a really good idea until you realize you can't eat it...


The Philip Island Chocolate Factory near Melborne, Australia has a pretty interesting attraction.  It is a zoetrope made of chocolate.  The delicious sculptures rotate on a disk synchronized with a strobe light to create an animation effect that is quite impressive.  Because video frame rates don't synchronize exactly with the strobe, there is an ugly line in the video while it is flashing that you would not see if you were watching this in person in Australia.  Still, it looks very impressive.  I do, however, question the use of perfectly good chocolate on a non-edible artwork.
