Simon de Bakker and Jon Stam built this video viewer which allows you to view movies off of a flash card, one frame at a time. The Bioscope uses a Raspberry Pi with a custom shield, and the case was 3D printed.

Inspired by an early movie projector of the same name, the Bioscope is a medium to experience memories in relative time. It consists of a hand-held device, to be viewed with one eye, which resembles an old film camera. By rotating the handle, the digital (or digitized home) movie is animated frame by frame, forward or in reverse, relative to the speed and direction that is used to turn the dial.

Bioscope demands users to actually (and manually) engage to see a movie. The act of seeing is subjectively constructed through each frame and view, hereby engaging us to notice the discrete relationships which manifest personal meaning.
