My Ultra-Competitive Side Loves This Sensor-Packed Smart Ball

A Bluetooth-connected foam ball packed with sensors and a battery you need to charge sounds like one of Silicon Valley’s worst ideas. Haven’t balls been adequately entertaining kids for centuries already? But it only took one toss of Play Impossible’s Gameball for me to understand why a ball upgraded with…

Daniel Radcliffe Was Picked for Harry Potter Role Because He Had ‘The Balls'

Casting Harry Potter wasn’t as easy as finding a cute kid who could stare wide-eyed as he was told he’s a wizard. It turns out, he also needed to have the rocks to get down and dirty in a multi-year franchise...even if the actor’s balls hadn’t dropped yet.

How the Heck Does This Ball Not Roll Off This Roof?

If it looks like a roof and it’s sloped downward like a roof, it should act like a damn roof and have stuff freaking slide off it, right? Not when it comes to Kokichi Sugihara’s “Impossible Rooftop.” Even if you place a ball on top of this model house’s roof, it won’t roll off. Instead, the ball will break physics,…

Seeing Tennis Balls Get Made Is Way More Captivating Than I Ever Thought

Ever wondered how Wilson makes its fuzzy little tennis balls? Benedict Redgrove captured the entire factory process in Thailand and reveals the full 24 steps it takes to make the bouncy balls. That’s a lot more steps than I ever imagined it would take, but the machinery involved is really interesting to see…

Watch a Light Bulb Totally Disintegrate a Ping Pong Ball

Here’s a 500 watt halogen light bulb vaporizing a ping pong ball. The wimpy plastic ball starts melting and then completely vanishes in seconds, leaving behind no evidence that it ever existed in the first place. It’s like the coolest way to dispose of anything. You can see it in slow motion at the end of the video as…

Making Shiny Balls of Mud Is a Surprisingly Beautiful Art Form

Mix a little dirt and mud, shape it with your hands, and out pops a beautiful shiny mud ball that’s actually the Japanese art of Hikaru Dorodango. It takes so much more work than that, of course, but it really looks like a person is just (skillfully) playing with mud. And then you see the finished product and see the…

Watch Molten Copper Impressively Destroy a Tennis Ball

For a second, it seems like the tennis ball might have a shot in surviving the molten copper because it seems like a force field surrounds the ball. But then, that make believe invisible layer gets destroyed and the tennis ball bursts into glorious flames. It gets even better when the fireball gets squished to release…

This LG Robot Ball Thing Is Insane This LG Robot Ball Thing Is Insane

Let’s talk about balls for a second. They’re super handy. They’ve done a lot for humans. And because of spherical objects, we have sports and automobiles. Heck—even the Earth is a giant ball.

A gasoline drenched flaming tennis ball is good for so many things

Need to have fun on a boring summer day? Get a bunch of tennis balls, drench ‘em in gasoline, put some wet gloves on and then torch the balls. You can throw fireballs, play tennis with balls that have a super long fire trail, punch ‘em, kick ‘em and do whatever your imagination wants with real life fireballs.

Slicing golf balls in half exposes the weird guts that hide inside

Golf balls are really, really weird. Especially the old ones used over a hundred years ago. The dimpled shell can hide things like goose and duck feathers, wound rubber and all other sorts of colorful and bright polymers and rubbers and plastics. The current balls are super fancy, I wish each golf ball still hid the…

Slow motion video of a 142mph tennis serve shows the ball turning to goo

A tennis ball is squishy and bouncy and totally perfect for slow motion fun. Watch as a tennis racket hits the fuzzy yellow green ball at 142mph in slow motion, it’s incredible. The more you slow it down, the more flattened and deformed and goo-like the ball gets. At a certain point, it looks like the ball has just…

Watching thousands of ball bearings dancing around is so satisfying

This kinetic art piece created by Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen is called Unstable Matter. I really wish I had this at home, controllable by my phone's motion sensor.

A Brief History of Every Official World Cup Ball Since 1930 A Brief History of Every Official World Cup Ball Since 1930

Every year, the World Cup is played with a new ball. That makes it unique—after all, few other sports reinvent the wheel every four years. But this element of uncertainty is also exciting, and it means that soccer ball technology has come a long, long way since the 1930s—when World Cup balls were still inflated…

A 17-year-old male is now in coma after suffering a heart attack when a friend jokingly squeezed his testicles. Dr. Irwin Goldstein—urologist and San Diego Sexual Medicine's director—says it's very possible to have a heart attack because the trauma can release a huge amount of adrenalin.

Your underwear can save your sperm. Or at least that's what Snowballs believes. What's Snowballs? A type of cooling underwear that basically uses ice packs for "scrotal cooling". Ball air conditioning, basically. It's for the kids.

Just a few hundred ping pong balls igniting into a giant tower of fire Just a few hundred ping pong balls igniting into a giant tower of fire

I never imagined ping pong balls were so extremely flammable but, as this video shows, only a few of them can cause a giant tower of fire several feet high.

How a British Florist Solved the Mystery of the Coming Apocalypse How a British Florist Solved the Mystery of the Coming Apocalypse

Last week, in the south west of England, the world started to fall in on itself. As little blue balls of sticky gel fell from the sky, Steve Hornsby feared the worst: the end was surely nigh. But, phew, it's all OK. A florist from a nearby town has sorted it out.

This Fish Has Teeth So Big It Bites People's Balls Off This Fish Has Teeth So Big It Bites People's Balls Off

Piranhas might have razor sharp teeth andthe ability to communicate but I'd rather have them feast on my body than this Pacu Fish. Why? Well, you see, the Pacu Fish has human-like teeth and loves to bite off testicles to ensure you die a slow, ball-less and bleed-full death. Ow.
