Product Notes

Invented by W.K.L. Dickson and Herman Casler in 1894, the Mutoscope was one of the earliest forms of motion picture technology. While at heart a hand
cranked giant flicker book, the makers where smart enough to offer an incredibly wide choice of genres.

Though the most popular form attracted the kind of comments we see today about Poser/Studio art...."scenes to tempt the depravity of manhood and the curiosity of youth" (The San Francisco Call, April 1899)...which lead to these machines becoming known as "What the Butler saw" machines.

In today’s 4K UHD world such technology seems to be redundant, which is a real shame as these machines have a wonderful Victorian/SteamPunk feel.
That made me wonder what if you could make a digital version, a machine that converged 3D art with Victorian technology. So I made both a real and 3d:) This is the 3 version, check out the poser forum for more details on the real world one.

Beautiful models as always. In my mind the machine will always be linked to The Steptoe and Son episode Porn Yesterday. You dirty old man!

During the early 70s (maybe 72 or 73) I visited Disney World in Orlando with my father. Located upon "Main Street USA" was a recreation of a "turn of the century" "penny arcade" and housed within it were several seemingly authentic mutoscopes. They were recreations, of course, but I believe they functioned like the genuine mechanisms. They left a lasting impression upon me.

I'll definitely grab this puppy when I return home this evening!
