Contact Juggling

The mesmerizing hobby of contact juggling simply must be seen to be believed; it bears almost no resemblance to the standard sideshow novelty jugglers we're used to seeing.

Rather than thin pins, rubber chickens or lacrosse balls, contact juggling involves a clear acrylic sphere. And instead of tossing the juggled object into the air, a contact juggler must always be touching the juggled orb or orbs.

In this video, watch how the contact juggler manipulates the acrylic ball. At around 0:52, the orb appears to float. Positively mesmerizing. Stats for Mesmerizing Performance-Based Hobbies Trending: Older & Chilly
