Kaleidoscope artist David Kalish is known for creating some of the most unexpected and awesome kaleidoscopes on the market, and he really hit a homerun with this baseball kaleidoscope. If you’re thinking, “Wow – that looks a lot like a real baseball,” it’s because it is! To create these wonderfully unique baseball gifts, David Kalish drilled through a regulation baseball and slid a teleidoscope inside, creating the appropriately named ‘Eye on the Ball’ baseball kaleidoscope.
A teleidoscope is similar to a kaleidoscope in that it has a kaleidoscope mirror system inside. Where the two differ is that unlike a kaleidoscope, a teleidoscope has a clear ball lens at the end rather than the traditional beads and glass pieces we most commonly associate with kaleidoscopes. The clear ball lens of a teleidoscope gets its color from whatever you point it toward, reflecting back a kaleidoscopic image. The image you’ll see at the inset shows you what we saw when we pointed one of these unique baseball gifts at a sheet of marbleized paper.
