Description
This white plastic form of kaleidoscope is a teleidoscope (e.g. it has a clear, open view lens). It is conical in shape with a round eyepiece and base. Within the base is a clear plastic lens with a hexagonal pattern that distorts the image being viewed through the eyepiece. A white sticker attached to the main body has red text that reads: Changing the way you look at Windows. The sticker also has a logo on it in red, white and gray, with white text on gray rectangles that reads: CORPORATE SOFTWARE.
