Turn your ceiling into a kaleidoscope with the Mangekyorooms


Do you remember my review of the Sega Toys HomeStar Planetarium a few years ago? It was a projector that would turn your ceiling into a starry night. Sega’s latest gadget is the Mangekyorooms Kaleidoscope Projector. Mangekyo in Japanese means kaleidoscope. But instead of shining stars on your ceiling, it will generate a rotating collection of colorful geometric shapes. What’s even better is that it will not show the same designs twice – you control it by using a packet of colored beads. When I was a kid, I was fascinated by kaleidoscopes. I guess I still am as this device looks like a lot of fun to me.

I've been obsessed with gadgets, gizmos since I was a little kid. Other interests include ukuleles, photography, and minimalism.

    I love this! SEGA makes something similar for the bathtub as well…

    I think it would be cool to mount 2 or 3 of these on the ceiling, so I could cover the floor of my man cave with hypnotic, trance inducing, chick loving designs.
    That is, if I had a man cave. And was single.
    As for the the bathtub light show, I do something similar with a flashlight and man-made bubbles. I love bath time!
