    Default Kaleidescope Projector

    Anyone ever made one of these? The commercially available ones seem to be kind of pricey. I was thinking that an LED flashlight might make a nice cool light source, then maybe a tunnel of cut mirrors, a few translucent "objects" and a lens...

    it sure does look like a bong...


    but either way its a good idea... not to much light is really needed to make it put out a very cool look.
    just the other week at the oregon country fair a booth that sells kaleidoscopes put up a scope that either slowly spun or was set to slowly change from some battery source and then simply put a light up robot behind it....

    glad i snapped a photo

    That's cool! When I was a little kid I played with trolls all the time. I found out that if I lit the troll really well and set him upside down, I could focus a simple lens image of him on an opposite wall. Troll TV! How cool is that?

    Thats like when I pulled one of the focusing lenses out of one of my intelligent lights, I could "project" my laptop screen! Shouldnt be too hard really, focusing it may be a problem though.
