Now this is one zany way to get your message across – with the Message Ball. All you need to do is throw your message and instead of receiving a reply, you catch one! Featuring a soft foam exterior that won’t hurt a fly even if it lands on one (we’re exaggerating here), the Message Ball is easy to both catch and throw. It comes with an integrated recorder that is capable of storing and playing back your own 10 second message. Powered by a trio of button cell batteries, the Message Ball will retail for $12.99. Best to exercise self-censorship with this, as the messages you send/receive pretty much depends on the type of company you keep.
