Light Show Fountain Speaker Set

Even kids know that their electronic toy will be broken when come in contact with water, and it’s been the natural law that electronic devices are weak with water. However, disregarding the elements incompatibility, people nowadays can create the mix anyway. For example, I’ve found this unique Light Show Fountain Speakers that has a water fountain system above the electronic-based speaker!

light-show-fountain-speaker

Well, the creator did a great job sealing the water above the speaker, inside a transparent tube where you can witness the beauty of the fountain light show. There is supposed to be a small pump system inside the speaker that could shoot the water stream up high and there are also four multi-colored LEDs spicing up the mood (I believe the fountain will dance with the music). It looks especially cool for a dark/dim workspace or entertainment room.

Interesting, no? If you love to get one, this little speaker fountain is available for $39.99 at ThinkGeek. Sadly, it’s currently out of stock at TG. You have to wait 1-3 weeks for the next batch of stock. If you are in a hurry, you can go to Amazon for their Christmas shipping deal. There are quite a few of fountain speaker designs available at Amazon.

Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball

I think I’ve been fooled by the TV show. I thought that bald guy playing with glass ball is amazing. As if the ball is sticking to his hands and he can even hand dance with the ball while standing in a fast moving car.

The reason the guy is amazing is not because of his skills, but it’s the ball!

fushigi-magic-gravity-ball

I guess This is the same ball that I saw in the TV. It’s Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball that could turn even a commoner into a magician with a short training of contact juggling. I can’t really describe it well because only those who touch and play with it will know the feel and how cool this ball is. :)

According to the description given by the manufacturer, Fushigi is a kind of therapeutic form of relaxation, and art of maneuvering a reflective sphere through mind and body isolation. Fushigi allow people to do many sort of things from performing juggle, exploits the reflective properties, doing magic tricks, and more.

Also, there is a free DVD included to teach you how to do a dozen of illusions. It’s interesting for improving eye-sight, focus, concentration and body reflex. However, I’m sure that not everyone can play this ball in the first time. I saw someone failed to do the contact juggling and got mad of it. Well, everybody’s talent are different, so to disclose things, I’ll start saying that Fushigi Magic gravity ball is fun, but not without some learning curve. You’ll have to learn a bit before you can “really” have fun with it.

Interested to get one? Amazon has it for MSRP of $49.99, but their discount might push it lower to $20 level.

Update:

Heck, if you want to save money, just get any ball shaped fruit (apple, orange, etc.) found in your kitchen. Let Dawn teach you how:

Have fun! 😀
