Sometimes you see, hear, or read things you want to share. They don't belong especially on a certain page, so lets place them here...

Toroflux

A mesmerizing kinetic sculpture and an interactive "flow toy" that's like a 4th dimensional "slinky". It folds down in a spiral direction to form a ring of rings and with a subtle movement, it pops open into a full torus of interconnected rings, surprising everyone. Comes with a mini-biner, so you can easily clip it to your bag or belt loop and bring it everywhere to share and spread the fun :)

Make an amazing Magic Ball

this ball seems to do strange things with gravity...

Amazing Ball Illusion!

Mirrormask (movie 2005, 101 min)

In a fantasy world of opposing kingdoms, a 15-year-old girl named Helena who works at the family circus with her father and mother, who wishes--quite ironically--that she could run away from the circus and join 'real life'. But such is not to be the case, as she finds herself on a strange journey into the Dark Lands, a fantastic landscape filled with giants, Monkeybirds and dangerous sphinxes. She must find the fabled MirrorMask in order to save the kingdom and get back home.

During the circus montage at the beginning of the film, there is a brief shot of a hand balancing and twirling a set of four crystal balls. This art is called Contact Juggling, created by performance artist Michael Moschen and originally debuted in the Jim Henson film Labyrinth (1986), which in part inspired this film.
