Throw Joy – Wes Peden

More info and full 53 minute video here!
http://www.wespeden.com/?page_id=8

Throw Joy is 53 minutes of sledgehammer hitting ice-cream cake. The result of 561 days spent making 6 clubs tricks, strapping cameras to trees, and filling 8 juggling notebooks with questionable ideas. The video not only includes the most hardcore juggling Wes has ever done with balls, clubs, and rings but keyboards, chairs, tripods, paintings, and wine bottles are also recklessly thrown skyward. After 24 years on earth and 19 years of juggling, Wes finally has the freedom to make a hula hoop out of clubs! Bon appetite!

Sphero – Macrolab Choreography


Woah, flashback to late 1990’s Aerotech Glowball juggling routines.

In a ploy to get contact jugglers everywhere to open their wallets*, Orbotix have announced a smartphone app (Android only at the moment) which will control and choreograph multiple Spheros at the same time and they now ship Sphero internationally.
