Hypothesis: Kaleidoscopes are as cool in 2022, as they were in 1817.
Result: OH BOY! YES they've still got it! 😎
We took our upgraded Cupboard Kaleida and Slow Water Tank to Kendal Library for a day of creative play.
The last time we took our digital Kaleidoscope out and about children naturally started drawing to see what their creations looked like "Kaleido-ised".
So for this outing we updated the cabinet allowing people to use buttons and dials to:
- Show each segment in turn as a kaleidoscope pattern.
- Animate the pattern, controlling the speed and direction.
- Show a guide image to play with positioning - or get your fingers in the right place to make freaky starfish!
