This Very Slow Movie Player features a Raspberry Pi that processes movies and displays them one… frame… at… a… time…

Bonus points if you can work out what movie this is by that ONE frame!

Bryan Boyer decided that he wanted to truly appreciate every frame of a motion picture. To this end, he has developed the Very Slow Movie Player (VSMP). The VSMP contains a Raspberry Pi running custom NodeJS software and a reflective ePaper display. It’s all housed inside a 3D printed case. He has reduced the playback time of videos to one frame every 2.5 minutes, giving a frame rate of 24 frames per hour (as opposed to 24 frames a second, the traditional speed of movies). Find out how he did it by reading his extensive blog here or by viewing the video below.
