Kaleido-Camera / Kaleidoscope Camera

Kaleido-Camera
Kaleido-Camera

This is a kaleidoscope which can be used to take photographs. Kids can use it to shoot different scenery and things. Then this kaleidoscope will automatically extract some things from each photograph by a color recognition which can extract regions with similar color from the original photo, and make them to be the rotating elements in the kaleidoscope.
When a kid takes a photograph, this kaleidoscope will automatically extract some things from that photograph and renew itself. Therefore, it shows a rotating boundless world to the kids. Furthermore, it stimulates the kids’ spirit of exploration and encourages them to get close to nature.
