DEMA demonstration: Kinora Viewer Replica

A hands-on demonstration of the Kinora Viewer Replica. This public online event shows the fruits of a recent successful collaboration between the C²DH and the Department of Engineering. Combining historical inquiry with a hands-on and technical approach - involving the latest 3D modelling and desktop manufacturing engineering techniques - a media historian and two engineers joined forces to produce a working replica of a very special object in the history of (early) cinema: the Kinora viewer.
