This year's Burning Man festival is set to feature an art installation that will blow all others out of the water. To coincide with this year's "The Carnival Of Mirrors" theme, the desert festival will include a Large Hadron Kaleidoscope, which will no doubt dazzle spaced out festival-goers throughout week long run. But you have to see this thing to believe it...

The Large Hadron Kaleidoscope will be housed in a hexagon shaped building with intricate patterns on its ceiling, and will use a plethora of mirrors and 2,500 color morphing LED lights to create the psychedelic patterns that kaleidoscopes are known for. The device will be out on display so that all Burning Man visitors can revel in its glorious illuminated splendour, serving as a stark backdrop for the desert landscape that houses the event.

Check out the video below for a preview of the Hadron Kaleidoscope in action...
