More on those Mathmos things
- So to kinda answer my own question, I've been in a/the Manchester gadget
shop today, here's my findings:
Me " Do you mind if I abuse it somewhat?, I wanna see if they're OK to
Shop assistant bloke " Nah, I've kicked it around a bit.."
Which suggests a fair durability at least..( the gubbins are deep within the
squishy stuff )
They feel lighter than I remember globalls being, they are noticably larger,
and the squishy finish is real nice on your hands when you're catching them,
the on/off switch is a fairly positive, deep press at one particular point,
so didn't seem too likely to get pressed during juggling, and they're all
the same price, even the blue and green ones.
There's only 4 LED's in each, and the diffusion is really patchy ( think
Astroballs ), and the recharge socket is, as previously mentioned in another
message, a shoddy area, and very noticable on the catch.
