Ok, so I just got an awesome idea. Imagine a pair of sock poi (made from real socks). You stuff another loose sock or two inside the poi socks, then insert a nice sized sponge. Soak the whole setup in water making sure it fills up nice and good. Then have a spin. Theyll probably be a bit heavy at first but Im sure theyll lighten up a bit in no time. I think this would look really awesome in a bright sunny setting, especially from far away. It would have a similar effect to wirewool but with water and much safer hehe... And on top of looking cool, on hot summer days you can act as your neighborhood sprinkler. Let all the kiddies run through the water spray ubblol

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Yeah, thought it might run out of water kinda quick but I think it might last long enough for a bit of fun and considering its only water, it wont be hard to refill many times. That or some more genius engineering to perfect the technology. One solution I thought of is something like a water balloon/plastic bag with a small hole poked in it so it lets water out gradually.

You could soak the sponges in mercury and it would look really amazing. Untill HASMAT shows up and decontainamates the whole place and charge you for the bill, and then the cops charge you for breaking the law.

Seriously though, Metallic paint would be really cool inside a rather small room with bright lighting to make it glitter when you video tape it, then you have a crazily decorated room that's pretty neat for your designated practice area.
