Today in ball sucking news:

Pneumatic Sponge Ball Accelerator

The apparatus contains 1000 black sponge balls, which are sucked through 150m of transparent pneumatic tubes with the power of a regular household vacuum cleaner. The balls travel with a speed of about 4m/s. Visitors can operate the machine with a touch sensor mounted on the pavilion's front glass: They can change the direction of the airflow and watch the balls speed up, slow down and reverse.

      It's new. I walked by there a couple years ago and saw that pavilion, but either it was empty or the contents were completely forgettable. This is much better!

    For the gentleman whose balls require extra attention.
