Fun in an Orb Answered

Rolling down a hill in a tire just got a tech upgrade. The buzzball, described as a "hamster ball for humans" is the new creation from Evento, a New Zealand company that creates, well, interesting forms of kinetic entertainment. The Buzzball recreates the feeling of being on an upside-down roller coaster in all its nausea-inducing glory. However, unlike the other products from Evento, the Buzzball does not come in the shape of a bathroom item.

Want. NOW!
Next to running up a down escalator and obtaining a high-speed camera, this is my new life goal!

This should be a contest prize.

Ran up a down escalator, it was fine. Now, running down an up escalator.. That is hella scary and I'm never doing it again. Just kidding, it's like an extreme sport. :D

at a computer store in taiwan, one of the employees went down the up escalator by sliding on the metal parts (on the side). basically, feet on the metal supports for the brushes, and hands loosely gripping the handrails

I went up an escalator once with my hands and feet on the rails. The ultimate goal is to put one foot on the up rail, one on the down rail and sit there spinning round.

You do know that the escalator steps are metal, and have lovely sharp corrugated edges? When you fall off the rail and bounce, that's something to keep in mind :-)

Oh definitely, I was thinking of doing it at the bottom of the escalator. Maybe with a helmet.

I wonder if this has enough power to rotate the 'driver' in the orb if it is put on a stationary platform... Or, add wheels to the platform for wild rotating fun! Add glasses with with two little LCD's for 360 video simulation... We wants the precious!

Doesn't seem like it's available for sale yet...but given the prices of the company's other products, it seems like it's going to be mighty expensive.
