    Slick! That must take considerable practice.

    I was hoping the credits would include the music, but they didn`t. Could somebody identify it for me? Many thanks!

    I have been contact juggling for about 6 monthes but I`m still a noob. This guy is OK but certainly not the best out there. Most of the tricks he is doing are noob tricks. There really isint any advanced stuff in there.

    WEIRD! I was actually playing with one of those no less than 30 seconds before I watched this movie. I used to work at a juggling/yo-yo store. He`s pretty good but he`s no michael moschen (he`s the guy who did all the contact juggling in Labyrinth)

    *Just to note*
    These contact juggling balls are made of an acrylic/epoxy compound. So they are VERY durable and at the same time quite heavy. The whole point of contact juggling is to make the heavy ball look like it`s floating. And just a warning to those who want to try this. As I said they are quite durable and your tile floor will break before the ball does. I know this from experience. =)

    No he can`t. Because in the Labyrinth Bowie wasn`t doing the contact juggling, Micheal Moschen was the man who was doing it. He was standing behind Bowie, which means he couldn`t see what he was doing. Quite impressive if you ask me.

    Very cool and Graceful very awesome to see for sure. Though I don`t think that it is completely real, it was most likely the guy doing some really nice flowing "liquid" dancing then editted with the balls to flow with his movements. Which would still be very nicely done

    >Stop being ignorant.

    You can see the photon mapping that was applied to achieve the "glass ball" effect in the film. Plus, if you go frame by frame, you can see the ball "jump" a little bit when his hand goes in front of it. See example: Glass Ball CGI Photon Mapping
