3-D Space Kaleidoscope
Here is a snapshot from a 3-D interactive space kaleidoscope. The image
is controlled with a free-space hand-held kaleidoscope tube.
For over a hundred years, kaleidoscopes have fascinated scientists,
designers, artists, and children. Invented by Sir David Brewster, and patented
by him in 1817, kaleidoscopes have since taken many forms. Here is an image
I created using a computer-generated kaleidoscope.

computational recipes used to produce these forms.
Here are some better computer-generated kaleidoscope images to look
my home page which includes the Wishing Project cataloging wishes from
various cultures, computer art, educational puzzles, fractals, virtual
caverns, JAVA/VRML, alien creatures, black hole artwork, and animations.
