This game works in a similar way as the earliest forms of analog animation. As Rebekah Modrak states in her book and on her website, Reframing Photography, thaumatropes (an early form of animation) “ depend on the persistence of vision to blend individual images, thereby creating the illusion of continuous motion.” In this case, single images randomly appear in our frame of view, one-after-another, thus making it appear that the being is toddling.

Louise Nelson. 1906. Pessary

Patent by Louise Nelson from 1906 for a Pessary.  “Be it known that I, LOUIsE N ELSON, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of Oakland, Alameda county, State of Cali fornia, have invented a new and useful Improvement in a Pessary, of which the following is a specification. My invention relates to an improvement in pessary, the object being to furnish a sanitary contrivance to be used by ladies during menstruation and also a more comfortable support for the womb than heretofore. I attain these objects by means of a hard rubber tube with a slightly extended edge, forming a cup shape, also a soft rubber tube fitted on the outside which prevents the hard rub ber edges from injuring the flesh, the pessary being supported on a hard rubber stem which has a small cross tube at its lower end allowing elastic cord to be run through and fasten on a waist or straps from the shoulders.”
