I was surprised to see the embedded video here. I just pasted the address as a link. Slick!

You can also use the little BLUE button at the bottom of the post and upload a video directly from your computer.

5 tons on the ball. Kids can set it spinning in any direction they want. They do learn a little bit about mass though .. once it's spinning it takes a little bit of effort to stop it and change direction. It's a great hands on device to show anyone about force and mass.

I bet that a lot of kids have had that spark that sets off a career by just playing ball.

Close .. Actually it's going in a boat. Once it's in there, it's pretty much in there for the long haul.
