Hoberman Mini Sphere - Expanding Universe Glow

The colorful Hoberman Mini Sphere comes out of the box looking like a futuristic Christmas-tree ornament. It's a cross between a ball and a star, and measures 5.5 inches across. But pick it up by any one of its dozens of plastic points and this amazing little feat of engineering, or imagineering, expands neatly into a lattice-like globe that's 12 inches in diameter. The inventor calls it a trapezoidal icosatetrahedron; you could also call it a Bucky Ball, but either way, it's a fascinating exercise in complex simplicity. The structure is rigid enough to roll and throw, yet if touched in the right way, it will suddenly collapse again, curling in on itself like a defensive hedgehog. An enclosed pamphlet describes various tricks you can do--if you're prepared to practice. And it's so aesthetically pleasing that Mom or Dad may swipe it for a desk ornament. --Richard Farr

Why not give these tricks a try?

Flip Down

Hold the closed Sphere by one hub on top of your open palm. Flip the Sphere over and watch it open, then flip it back to the top of your palm and let it close. When you’ve mastered this, try it with your other hand.


Open Bounce
Hold the Sphere fully open with two hands and throw it down to the floor. If you spin it towards you, it will bounce back.


Two-Handed Open-to-Close Spin
Hold the opposite hubs of an open Sphere between your thumbs and first two fingers. Using your thumbs, twirl the Sphere backwards as you close it and push in so the hubs are spinning on the palms of your hands. This takes practice, but looks really cool.


Floor Spin
Open the Sphere and place it on the floor. Holding the upper hub, spin the Sphere and watch it move. Try spinning it on a hub, then a triangle, then a pentagon – notice the different way it moves on each of these shapes.
