last night at roughly 10:30 i was bored and juggling (something i'm not to great at but it's fun) when i got bored and decided to catch the third ball with the other two. my hands never actualy touched the ball until i wanted it to, but by putting pressure on the the two outside balls, the one in the middle just kinda sat there. i found that i could roll the other balls areound it and looked really kinda cool! any way i just thought this was kind of odd so i decided to ask. anyone know if this is new or has it been done before.
thanx weavesmiley

Sounds a lot like a 'contact juggling' (CJ) move.

It's always exciting to invent something yourself, even if others invented it before you. juggle

I am glad this is an international game - I learnt in school that the world spins, and now I know it's true.

Yeah... that is sometimes done in contact juggling. Another thing to look into involving trapping an object between two others is cigar box juggling.

Go to this page and check out the "Charlie Brown with boxes in the park" video. Crazy stuff:

Yeah, it's something that is the basis of cigar boxes...it's also something that is seen a bit in some other manipulation arts...I have seen one video from CJ.org where a guy had 2 cubes and a ball, and moved the boxes around the ball in a very mechanical way, very trippy stuff...

Okay thanx, i was just curious. it was really fun to do, but for some reason keeping a ball maintained between two other balls isn't easy, go figure. weavesmiley
