And now for something completely different. I came across this entertaining gadget thinking I was going to learn how to make an old time kaleidoscope like I remembered from my childhood. Something with a cardboard tube and little colorful pieces tumbling around inside, you know?
Instead it turned out to be an online widget to make your own kaleidoscope using digital pictures. You swirl your mouse around on it and then . . . ooooooh. . . . . look at all the pretty colors and designs! So much easier than the old fashioned way!
You can either upload a specific picture, or just use the default picture of the flowers. It’s all good.
So I give you permission to take a break from the serious stuff and have a little fun.
Here’s the link: = = = > > > Make Your Own Kaleidoscope
If you find an image on the internet you want to try on the kaleidoscope (I did a Google Image Search) you will have to right click on the picture, then click “copy image location”, and then copy and paste that URL into the box on the Kaleidoscope widget. See . . . you aren’t completely wasting your time. You are learning new computer skills. Tell yourself that.
Here’s a kaleidoscope I did from an image of a rainbow.
