Max Wertheimer's Zoetrope has mind transference properties. The zoetrope makes the moving image of 2 people dancing.


Hugo Miller used the zoetrope when he built the AI for Warehouse 13 . He hooked the zoetrope up to the computer system and attempted to imprint himself on the computer. He only partially-succeeded, in that the right half of his brain made the transfer. The Warehouse agents reversed the process, bringing the physical Hugo back together with the virtual Hugo.
