Stroboscopic Effect

from Magnin & Associates, originally released 13th November, 2010

Did you ever notice the wheels on the car driving next to you sometimes appear to be spinning backwards? This is referred to as the stroboscopic (or wagon-wheel) effect. It occurs when an object is rotated at certain speeds, making the object to appear to stop or even go backwards.
