ABBÉ NOLLET’S INSTRUMENTS

In the 18th century, Father Jean Antoine Nollet designed remarkably beautiful machines that vulgarize certain scientific principles. Made fragile by time, the instruments were reproduced in simple, engaging 3D animation that demonstrates how they work. This animation excerpt explains how a water pump works.
