It's called 'contact juggling' and it's a really cool thing to watch. There's a gal on Youtube who takes an orange and achieves the very same illusion you see done on Fushigi ball commercials.
Maybe it's a bit mean-spirited of me, but I do kind of snicker at the enormous number of people who think that the Fushigi company has overcome the principles of gravity and put it into some magic ball. This thing is a classic, classic example of 'fools and their money..." Anyone who bought this thing truly believing that it somehow magically floated in the air is a colossal sucker; life for them will be a lot more disappointing than their Fushigi letdown.
I suppose it's a fine contact juggling ball, but just understand that you can do the same thing with any solid sphere and when you buy the Fushigi ball, if you're expecting the results to be as-seen-on-tv, you'd better be prepared to invest an awful lot of time and practice in learning the art itself. There is nothing magic about the Fushigi ball and you will not be able to 'make it float' just by buying one.
It's the worst ball you can buy. It's extremely unstable, pretty fragile (it can break into pieces,) and not to mention it wobbles. Yeah, that's right, it's a ball with a terrible center of gravity. If you roll it on a table, it will probably roll haphazardously before falling off. It's JUST A BALL, and it FAILS AT BEING A BALL. If you don't believe me, look up Fushigi videos about it's durability and quality. Just saying.
I was surprised, upon opening our demonstration Ball, to read in the directions that, despite what marketing would suggest, this product is not a toy. It is not intended for children under 12 and includes a lengthy list of warnings including:
-Do not put the Fushigi in the hands of children
-Do not use the Fushigi over tile, stone, hardwood floors, tables, desks, glass (it is quite heavy - also a hindrance in mastering the maneuvers)
-Never use this product outdoors as it can damage your eyes
-Never hold Fushigi anywhere your face
-Do not hold Fushigi against any part of your skin or body
Also, the DVD tutorial is brief with quick demonstrations and not entirely explanatory. Many of the maneuvers presented in the tutorial also require multiple Fushigi Balls, making these techniques worthless with the one Fushigi you purchased.
This is apparently 'contact juggling,' a term I had never heard before. It is a relatively new art form that started in the '80s. The directions say that though the demonstrators in the infomercial have years of experience, with just minutes a day anyone can master this art form. Well, this 27 year old man with hours of time to master it completely failed to effectively master ONE maneuver. Your kids will get bored very, very quickly.

Seems to be a chrome ball encased in acrylic. If you spin the ball on a table fast enough, it becomes apparent that the middle ball isn't centered. Otherwise not noticeable.Published 4 months ago by Travis
Having fun with it. It is heavy so I had to buy a rubber practice ball. I also was told that the fushigi was not balanced right or something. Read morePublished 5 months ago by B. H.
