The Space Ball by Kyosho Egg is Like a Mini Controllable Death Star

The Space Ball is like a birdcage and helicopter toy in one. In place of the classic helicopter form is a spherical shape that houses two sets of propellers and a motor. As Dvice points out, the Space Ball is like a tiny controllable Death Star, an observation that many 'Star Wars' fans would appreciate.

Offered by Kyosho Egg, a shop based in Japan, the Space Ball is controlled by an infrared light. Equipped with a gyro sensor, the Space Ball can automatically right itself after a fall. Although the design is rather minimalist, the unorthodox shape is enough to captivate even the most distractible child and, let's face it, adult. Available in various colors, the Space Ball would make a unique Christmas gift.
