…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.”

…Survivors can document the scene?

Plane Crash Photo

Soon, we will live in a world where everything will be documented and photographed and videoed for the consumption of the masses.

For example: As one Swedish passenger was crawling out of the wreckage of last week’s Thailand plane crash, he grabbed his mobile phone and started to video the scene.

The result is a barrage of bloodied and bewildered passenger photos that give a pretty good idea of the horror that they must have been going through.

What do you think: Is this going too far?

(Caution: Some of the photos are rather gory)
