Abstract Kaleidoscope

Green Flag - Different patterns each time!

There is a 1 in 62,510,760 chance that the pattern will be 8 dots moving about the screen.

A remix I made with more curves rather than straight lines that I think looks nicer: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/185509240/

Note that the reflections are in different colours unlike a normal kaleidoscope.

Some of my other kaleidoscopes:
* The Hexagonal Kaleidoscope is most like a real kaleidoscope *

A pattern created by drawing lines between two points moving in random directions and also drawing several reflections of these lines.

A few Scratchers have asked about the 1 in 62,510,760 chance.
The two random points would have to start in the same position on our 361 x 481 pixel stage pointing in the same 1-360 degree direction. 361 x 481 x 360 = 62,510,760.

If you click the Green Flag 1 time per second, 24 hours per day, then there is roughly a 50% chance you will see the 8 dots within 10 years.
There are 8 dots as the dot is reflected in the kaleidoscope.
