Full Product Description

K-1 Kaleidoscope

The Toy

K-1 is the classic toy. Turning and shaking actions are made with the mouse, touch monitor, keyboard or switch. K-1 is many kaleidoscopes in one. Pre-set the colours and shapes or allow the program to constantly change them - the choice is yours. The optional music can be used to encourage play, or switched off to avoid disturbing others. Choose one theme from the six provided, or let the music change each time the kaleidoscope is 'shaken'.

K-1 Kaleidoscope

The Graphic Design Tool

In Design Mode, choose the shapes and colours that make up the kaleidoscope. Then shake and turn until the pattern suits. Vary the background colour and music at will. As in a 'real' kaleidoscope, the patterns made are always different. Create a design with K-1 and it will be unique and original. Save designs for later or print them immediately. If you save a design, the whole animation sequence is also saved along with it. These animations can then be displayed in the K-1 screensaver. So - depending on your purpose - you can either save designs because you like the individual snapshot, or because you like the whole animation sequence it belongs to.

The Assessment Tool

K-1 can be used in access assessments for those with a combination of physical and sensory impairments.

The Multi-Sensory Device

In the multi-sensory room, K-1 acts both as a calming device and as visual stimulation. For those with no control over their movement, use the K-1 screensaver to provide visual stimulation and a constantly changing image.

A Happy Reminder of Times Past

K-1 can be used by older people with no previous experience of computers. A new way to enjoy an old pastime!

Switch Users

K-1 is a ground-breaking design tool for switch users. Beautiful designs can be produced within a few hours regardless of physical impairment.

Visual Impairment

Bright contrasting colours and large buttons make K-1 accessible to those with a degree of visual impairment. High powered lenses severely reduce the area of pattern visible on a standard kaleidoscope. With K-1, the entire pattern is visible. For more severe visual impairment, the shapes and background colours can be carefully selected to enhance contrast and visibility. This selection can be prepared in advance, saved and loaded when required. Twenty different selections can be saved to file for each user.
