Have you ever been reading one of our optical illusion pieces (let's face it, there are a few) and wondered what it would be like to walk through the design? it's a niche thought, we admit – but thanks to a new exhibit, you can wander through a giant kaleidoscope (and it's totally mind-blowing).

The installation was designed by London-based company STUFISH and features the world's largest kaleidoscope. The design was created to kick-start the technology event One Giant Leap with a colourful bang. According to STUFISH, the exhibit is inspired by the nature of Saudi Arabia, with the kaleidoscope footage featuring scenes from the ocean floor to the starry night sky.
