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

Previously on MoM.

Let’s say you’re bodyrolling and you drop your ball, can your ball transform into a 6 legged robot and walk back to you. No. I don’t think so, your ball can’t do this…
Jump to 56sec for the transformer action.

GoSphero’s Channel has lots more videos of it scaring kids and chasing cats and that sort of thing, or you can check out their website:

A while ago, A nice Brazilian man gave me an orange ball, and in return I promised a video of me using said ball.

I was slack, and took ages. Sorry about that… ANyway, this video also gives a taste of what is coming up in the workshops I’m organising around the UK at the moment.

Nik makes awesome videos. you should get him to make yours too. SRSLY. Such a good eye, and really able to express through his editing. Love it.
