Live Kaleidoscope is a Windows Phone 7.5 (WP7 Mango) application. It's not just any 'ol Kaleidosope application. It uses the new OS features from the latest Microsoft Phone OS to turn the phone's camera to a live Kaleidoscope.

Discover new patterns in the simplest of objects as you pan around your room, point it to your friend and family and see them bloom into the most beautiful flowers. Save those Kaleidoscopic images and share them online and have others guessing on what those are.
