KALEIDOLISM is a fun geometric/prismatic viewer
It’s Sunday again, the day of rest. How about some fun, mindless activities to relieve the stresses of the week?
Back in the days when I was a child, I had a toy called a “kaleidoscope”. It was a long tube with an end that could be rotated. I would hold the tube up to the light, turn the end and create the most amazing geometric shapes. I had no idea how such a simple device could produce such beautiful patterns but it was certainly a fun way to spend some time.
Fast forward to the 21st Century where there are now virtual versions of almost everything be it flying a plane, planning a city, stealing a car or having a second life. It should come as no surprise that someone has even created a digital version of the kaleidoscope toy called, KALEIDOLISM which works without tube, crystals and mirrors.
Instead of crystals, users can upload their favourite picture or image which is given the kaleidoscope treatment. Instead of actually turning something at the end of a tube to change the design, users now use their mouse but the principal is still the same.
Bottom line? Much as I love all the digital stuff, 21st Century resources and today’s app, I still prefer the old analogue, tube style, kaleidoscope. Unfortunately, my chances of actually finding one are probably slim to none so KALEIDOLISM not a bad alternative.
