An absolutely incredible great ball contraption which took japanese dude Aikiyuki 600 hours to build.
“Two Ball Juggling with High-speed Hand-Arm and High-speed Vision System,” by Takahiro Kizaki and Akio Namiki from the Graduate School of Engineering at Chiba University in Japan, file this one under “jugglers are obsolete”. More info.
Thanks to Mike Icon for the link.
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.
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.
