Is it possible you were looking at
http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/advanced%20kaleidoscope%20designs.htm


Also, within that page the author refers to another kaleidoscope maker
whose information can be found here:

I don't know if either of these are what you are looking for, but both
are pretty cool.

Its a site about (by?) a guy who builds very unique kaleidoscopes. He
does some complex(?) math and precision engineers his scopes so the the
image you look at appears to be some 3D object (of may brilliant colors
and changing patterns). As I recall he had some that were "room size"
contraptions that had multiple viewing points, and each view was a
different 3D shape.



I've tried every search variation I can think of with no luck. I'm
hoping someone here has a name or bookmark for me =)



Thanks!
