What is Kaleidoscope?

Dear Student,


A kaleidoscope is a cylinder with several mirrors containing loose, coloured objects such as beads or bits of glass. It works on the principle of multiple reflection, where several mirrors are placed at an angle to one another. When a person looks into one end, light entering the other creates a colourful pattern.
