The Globe

This is a design Ikego made by Lars. It is as simple as it can be. Take something heavy, wrap a wire or two around it and create something that can hold a regular vinyl ball – with earth printing. Study the earth or play ball. An educational tool for brain and body.

Build or buy?

This solution is pretty easy to buy. Just get a regular (2mm or 1,5mm) wire from the hardware store, something heavy and a light (vinyl) ball with the print you want. Those balls are readily available from many manufacturers.
