Who invented the Kaleidoscope?
The Kaleidoscope was invented by Scottish Physicist Sir David Brewster in 1816. His experimental work in optics and light led him to making a device that would make multiple reflections. He was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and seemingly infinite patterns one could make with his invention.
