You've probably seen a Hoberman Sphere before, but you won't understand just how fun they are until you get one in your hands and manipulate it yourself. It's one of those toys that you will steal from your children. In fact, we recommend that you get one for each member of the family in the interest of household peace.
Invented by Chuck Hoberman, the Hoberman sphere consists of six orthodromes that correspond to the edges of an icosidodecahedron. The unique, jointed construction allows you to shrink it down to six inches in diameter and stretch it out to 30 inches with one fluid motion. Want to see an even bigger Hoberman sphere? Get thee to the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey, where their 700-pound sphere stretches to a whopping 18 feet in diameter.
