- n. A trade-name for a moving-picture machine or kinetoscope.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Of other moving pictures machines we have had the vitascope, vitagraph, magniscope, mutoscope, panoramagraph, theatograph and scores of others all derived from the two Greek roots _grapho_ I write and _scopeo_ I view.
