Scissors cut through a piece of fine fabric, which is then guided by skilled hands through a sewing machine.

When the light shines on the card and interacts with your eye, it will activate only one set of strips on the surface of the card, activating only whatever image is displayed by that particular set of strips. As the light shifts, another set of strips will be activated, displaying the next image. If three images are contained in the card, the third will be displayed as you continue to rotate the card yet further. So as you view the card from different angles, the illusion of movement is created. Depending on how you use the technology, this can be used to create a “flip book” effect, or it can be employed to display a series of totally different images on a single card surface. The technology is so adaptable and versatile, virtually any business can use it to enhance customer interest and bring new faces into the shop.

An athletic clothing company can use it to show an athlete in motion, as with the surfer, or a realtor can use it to display several homes and properties in a single card.
