Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball
The only 'problem' with the Fushigi ball is that they're effectively marketing a skill- which requires tons of practice- by telling the public that the result is yielded by the product itself.It's called 'contact juggling' and it's a really cool thing to watch. There's a gal on Youtube who takes an orange and achieves the very same illusion you see done on Fushigi ball commercials.Maybe it's a bit mean-spirited of me, but I do kind of snicker at the enormous number of people who think that the Fushigi company has overcome the principles of gravity and put it into some magic ball. This thing is a classic, classic example of 'fools and their money..." Anyone who bought this thing truly believing that it somehow magically floated in the air is a colossal sucker; life for them will be a lot more disappointing than their Fushigi letdown.I suppose it's a fine contact juggling ball, but just understand that you can do the same thing with any solid sphere...

It looks amazing. The only problem is the people you see on the TV advertisement have all praticed for countless hours to make this thing work. If you like to juggle then maybe its for you. If you want something that you can take out of the box and make it work be prepared to do alot of pratice. The DVD is good to show you how they make it appear to be floating. But it is just an illusion, maybe a good gift for a magician or circus performer. Probably not a good choice for anyone under the age of 10.

I bet everyone has said this, but it's just a ball. Since I contact juggle, everyone asks me to buy it cause it'll float better (it defies gravity, etc.) I haven't bought one, but I know people who do. Ok-It's the worst ball you can buy. It's extremely unstable, pretty fragile (it can break into pieces,) and not to mention it wobbles. Yeah, that's right, it's a ball with a terrible center of gravity. If you roll it on a table, it will probably roll haphazardously before falling off. It's JUST A BALL, and it FAILS AT BEING A BALL. If you don't believe me, look up Fushigi videos about it's durability and quality. Just saying.
