The idea for the kaleidoscope came from Scottish scientist David Brewster in 1816.  He was studying many aspects of physical sciences including polarization optics and the properties of light when he invented the kaleidoscope.  He named his invention "kaleidoscope" from the Greek words:

kalos = beautiful

eidos = form

scopos = watcher

Therefore kaleidoscope means "beautiful form watcher"
