…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.”
