With the technology’s development, more and more fancy and novel ideas are coming true. People are not satisfied with the existing ball game, football, basketball, ping pong, and something others. So the wonderful person, Ebersolt's Ballule, invented the new ball game, zorb ball!

 

The history of zorb ball

The first balloon we know today was invented by French architect Gilles Ebersole in 1975. Ebersole came up with the idea as a teenager. He created a ball, which he called "ballule" ("bubble" in French). Ballule uses an inverted vacuum cleaner to pressurize, but in other respects, it is basically the same as a modern zorb ball.
The name zorb ball comes from Andrew Akers and Dwayne van der Sluis of Rotorua, New Zealand, who founded zorb Co., Ltd. in 1994. Zorb company created the world's first commercial hamster ball for mankind and built the first zorbing park.

In short, it is a great bubble of plastic (PVC), which contains another bubble of the same material, with a nice interior. The diameter of this ball is 3.5 min diameter.

 

Popular zorb ball
In the early 1990s, the game of the TV series "American Gladiator" used a hard human hamster ball, which they called "Atlantis ball". The contestants rolled the ball into the division, while the "Gladiator" tried to keep the ball out of the division in an epic billiard game. But these are not exactly the same balls; They have a rigid frame, more like a cage than a bubble.
