Did you know kaleidoscopes are over 200 years old? First discovered in Scotland by Sir David Brewster, kaleidoscopes have enjoyed a long history as a somewhat magical toy, providing wonderful colors and symmetry to both old and young alike. A teleidoscope is a type of kaleidoscope that uses a lens (in this case a spherical marble) to focus whatever you point it at into the mirrors, where it is then reflected into the pattern that you see. We use high quality lenses with the same quality glass as camera and telescope lenses, and scientific grade mirror also found in telescopes to create the high quality illusions viewed within our 'scopes.

This teleidoscope is 4.5" long x 3/4" diameter, and features an equilateral mirror assembly, made of 3 strips of front surface mirror cut and aligned to create a repeating pattern based on equilateral triangle geometry. The teleidoscope is available in purple, gold, or Green, all colors will have the same mirror geometry. Each teleidoscope will come with a small drawstring pouch to keep dust off the lenses when not in use.

This is the 4th time I’ve bought a coloradoscope over 5 years . They are still my absolute favorite in Kaleidoscopes selections out there . I’ve been making art with them since 2016 when I got my first at electric forest, have filmed an art video project through one . There are Kaleidoscope apps out there that will do it for you and I used them for awhile. I still love something about the quality of the real thing after making some side by side comparisons. The edge of the lens refracts light and shapes it around the fisheye in a gorgeous way. You can tell these are made with love and intentions. I never go to a festival without having mine in my fanny pack . 😍
