A kaleidoscope is a cylinder with mirrors containing loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. As the viewer looks into one end, light entering the other creates a colorful pattern, due to the reflection off of the mirrors. Modern kaleidoscopes are made of brass tubes, stained glass, wood, steel, gourds or almost any material an artist can use.
Can there be further enhancements in Kaleidoscope Design ?.
Can we try any other shapes viz circle, square, triangle, cone, pyramid, spherical, Kite, Pentagon, Hexagon etc other than Cylindrical shape for Kaleidoscope Designing ?. Will the change in different shapes give us different views/patterns of beads or pebbles and bits of glass while rotating Kaleidoscope ?.
Thanks & Regards,
