Make a Virtual Kaleidoscope

I stumbled upon this program. It is an early lesson on symmetry and also reminiscent of the toy kaleidoscope of yore.

These designs are made from the same set of 'virtual objects'. As the highlighter rotates, portions of the design are illuminated creating the kaleidoscope effect.
