 2. It should have two rings rotation together. The inner one should move slowly, meanwhile the outside shader one should move fast, such that it can generate animation by illusion


Such that I fixed the inner wheel with axis, and make the outside on the bearing, such that for the animation, we just need to trigger the outside one with fast speed, and slowly rotate the inner one.

That’s it.
