…It’s Things Thursday: Waboba Ball?

Waboba BallThe Waboba Ball is a cool new invention that actually bounces on water.

Made of polyurethane with a lycra coating, the mix of different polyurethanes allows the ball to bounce along the surface of the water until it runs out of energy, at which point it just floats, waiting for you to pick it up and throw it again.

The Waboba Ball was perfected by the Swedish inventor Jan von Heland, and grew in popularity on the beaches of Australia.

According to Jan: “I first got the idea when I was throwing a frisbee upside down on the water trying to get it to bounce, I thought it would be good to get something that used the water to bounce off and began to experiment.”

…Nike’s Mercurial Vapor SLs are amazing?

Nike Mercurial Vapor SL

Though I couldn’t find much in the way of official information, it doesn’t take a press release to know that these shoes are special.

Called the Nike Mercurial Vapor SL, they are made of nearly 100% carbon fiber, and weigh just 6.7 ounces.

It took Nike three years to design and produce the shoe, and features include an outsole plate made from seven layers of carbon composite material interwoven with TPU and polyurethane, a molded carbon fiber upper, and an internal carbon fiber chassis for “instant acceleration”.

Plus, if Cristiano Ronaldo approves them, then who are you to say otherwise?
