IN THE COLORFUL, complex world of Kaleido, where more than 300 kaleidoscopes are on display, perpetual motion is only a motion away. There are $3.50 paper kaleidoscopes and more expensive wonders, such as the $7,000 dream scope. But the piece de resistance is the spectacular party scope ($2,400), which allows four people to simultaneously experience an endless tidal wave of design.
