Pinwheel Moiré

Moiré (more-ray) patterns happen when you move transparent patterns over one another.

This demonstration allows you to deconstruct a moiré, and see the resulting pattern.

Click on the A button to reveal the bottom pattern. Click on the B to reveal the rotating pattern. Use the arrow buttons to change the direction of rotation.
