I have grown almost old now but I still enjoy looking into a kaleidoscope.

There are many programs on the web that simulate digitally such a toy , but they are possibly never fully interactive. I always wanted to make my own interpretation.

As we were invited to play with color, I have selected to kill two birds with one stone. Some photographic images of mini-jars of paint that are used to decorate airplane scale models were assembled almost in a standard way into a VR "panorama" to finally get a magic effect.

Please be carefull as this viewing could you make you a little dizzy though.

Peinture en kaleidoscope numérique
Malgré mon age qui s'avance, je trouve encore plaisir à parfois regarder dans un keleidoscope.

Il existe de nombreux logiciels capables de nous en donner l'illusion comme avec des vrais jouets, mais j'ai tenté d'en faire une interpretation par mes propres moyens.

D'une pierre j'ai fait deux coups, puisque l'on nous invite à jouer avec les couleurs: voici ce que quelques images de bocaux miniature qui contiennent la peinture servant à décorer les modèles réduits d'avions peuvent donner après un assemblage dans un panorama VR. Ça devient assez magique n'est-ce pas?

Attention, car cette vue mouvante peut donner un peu de vertige si l'on en abuse...

Amusez vous bien!
