Again With The Super Balls


What can Dr. Max say? I just happen to always be on the cutting edge of what’s hot. Apparently a large amount of colored super balls are now the new black.

Is it easy being a scout for popular culture? No, you need an extremely short attention span and lots of hours to waste online to spot what the rest of the world will soon consider cool.

On the cusp of last weekend’s posting about the Sony super ball ad, Dr. Max discovered this art exhibition featuring our favorite colored lump of compressed synthetic rubber. While Lukira may have done the actual hard work of researching and posting on this exhibition called “Atomix-Full of Love, Full of Wonder" by artist Nike Savvas at Art Gallery of New South Wales, Dr. Max saw it in connection with a growing interest in the bouncy wonders that is about to reach the tipping point into full blown fad.

The super ball market looks bullish, scoop up as many as you can before this trend peaks. Another public service of That One Blog.

Colored super balls are now the new black? Now that's a great line.

These superball things remind me of something I saw on TV about a zillion years ago...I think it was "Mr. Wizard" and probably in B & W.
The floor in a large room was covered with mouse traps that were "cocked" and on each was placed a ping pong ball. At the key moment an additional ping pong ball was tossed out and triggered a single mouse trap to go off. The net result after the balls started bouncing was a classic chain reaction. It was all used to demonstrate a nuclear chain reaction and must have pretty good since I have remembered it all these years.

So why were the first (original) super balls black?
