The Float table is a matrix of “magnetized” wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables. It’s classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float’s dynamic character.
Visual Juggling Project is a succession of suggestions on object motion & body language, highlighting the graphic side of the discipline. It is a collaboration of 12 international jugglers & manipulators, with various props, including; balls, clubs, rings, poi, devilstick & frisbee. It has been made from the shared reflections, explorations & experiences of those major stakeholders on the dynamic relationships between tech & flow. This 80 Minutes, Hi Definition video (with 19 chapters) is the one to get to become aware of the potential of this unexplored playground.

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.
ZOMG! I’m just going to write it once but you can pretend it is repeated for about ten pages. Robotic ball, controlled by your smartphone. And it glows. It’s like all your CJ glow pron dreams come true at once. Oh yes it is. Don’t try and say otherwise.
I for one welcome our new robotic…. etc.
New 25 minute juggling film from Arjan Groenendijk:
Made in Taiwan, as the title implies, is shot in Taiwan over a period of 6 weeks during Arjan’s internship at MHD. The editing is done by Martijn Halekor and the music is provided by Bas Septer (Substrate). The collaborative effort between these three creators has resulted in a 25 minutes long diabolo film. The 10 chapters contain Arjan’s unique diabolo manipulations and innovative, technical diabolo juggling.
Only € 5 for a dose of inspiration (not to mention funding a very talented artist)
