Build your own motion picture projector that projects your own film with no batteries required!

Take a trip down memory lane to the past where films are screened in black and white with your very own Mechanical Vitascope model!

Dating back to 1890s, this 172-piece projector model has a cinematic bulb that lights up a short film once you start rotating its hand crank.

Powered solely by kinetic energy, no batteries or any external power source is required to cast your very first short film!


  • Build an early film projector designed in the 1890s – This is the first invention of a motion projector that gave birth to the modern cinema we have today.
  • Get hands-on with the physics of light projection – Experiment with adjusting the focal lengths, and how the clarity of an image gets adjusted. Understand first hand how a system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length.
  • Includes a cinematic short film of a Chaplin’s classic ‘Modern Times’ – Once your vitascope projector is assembled, simply load up the film, start projecting and enjoy!
  • No batteries or electrical source required for image projection – Simply rotate the hand crank mechanism to power up the cinematic bulb of your assembled Vitascope, and watch your motion picture come alive!
  • No glue or additional tools required – The pieces are designed such that they fit perfectly together.
