The Lure of the Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball

Updated on November 26, 2011

Are you looking for a novel idea for a Christmas gift? Have you ever wanted to hold people mesmerized by simple actions? The Fushigi ball may provide an opportunity to do just that. The Fushigi ball provides a channel to act in the classical illusionary manner of a magician. In demonstrations, the ball appears to defy gravity and even seems to float in mid air. The ball does not actually float in space but manipulative techniques coupled with the silver appearance of the sphere combine to provide the illusion.

Just tinkering with this new toy could provide hours of entertainment.

The company that produces the Fushigi ball maintains that playing with the ball is therapeutic in nature and aids relaxation.  Besides, there is nothing like being the life of the party.  Take the magnificent globe to a party and demonstrate how to operate it.  Then challenge your friends and acquaintances to do the same.  Let them struggle with the globe on their own for a while then instruct them on the proper use.

If they learn how to manipulate the ball properly to provide the illusion of defying gravity and levitation, they may rush out to get their own.  The TV commercials even demonstrate activities involving multiple Fushigi balls and the combined entertainment value is truly something to behold.

To learn more about the art of contact juggling and the principles of manipulation, read the book by Paul Ernest "Contact Juggling." These principles may be applied to the Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball and other contact juggling manipulations that you could use to mesmerize your friends or simply relax.


The Fushigi ball could become one of those classic Christmas gifts that reappear year after year. I personally cannot wait to get my hands on one.

The Fushigi ball is available at Walmart and other fine discount outlets but for those of you who, like me, do not relish the prospects of trudging through nasty weather or fighting the crowds to go shopping, maintains an ample supply of these magnificent globes in stock at reasonable prices.

The Fushigi ball comes complete with a CD to demonstrate and teach the new operator the fine art of using the Fushigi ball in the fine art of illusion.


Based on the art of contact juggling, the Fushigi Magic Gravity ball exploits the reflective properties of a clear acrylic sphere by emphasizing specific hand and body movements and positions.  Remember, what the proficient operator does is provide an illusion that the bal defies gravity by appearing to move on its own.  Sometimes the ball appears to move in ways that the mind thinks are contrary to what a sphere would do in relation to the hands that are manipulating the ball.  Providing an illusion is the key, which is what magic is all about.  If you already have the ability to juggle then the Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball would be a perfect addition to your juggling portfolio. (, 2010).
