The word Kalliroscope comes from the Greek words “Kalos,” “Rheos,” and “Skopien,” meaning Beauty, Flow and Seeing.  A Kalliroscope is an object in which to see a beautiful current.  It was invented by Paul Matisse in 1966, patented in 1968, and sold throughout the world since then.

A Kalliroscope© is a device for viewing fluid currents.  Kalliroscopes are both works of art and intuitively educational displays of the scientific principles of fluid dynamics.  They are glass and steel constructions containing a current-visualizing fluid.
