What you get

Hoberman Original Mini Transforming Sphere, boxed.

How does it work?

A complicated series of levers and pivots allows this amazing sphere to transform in size. It folds and unfolds with a scissor-like action - great for simple machine discussions and classroom demonstrations. Its inventor, Chuck Hoberman, also designs giant spheres constructed of stainless steel, aluminum and other materials. The largest existing Hobermen sphere is in the atrium of Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. Fully expanded, it measures 5.5 m in diameter and weighs 320 kg. The eye-catching motorized sphere continually oscillates between its compact and expanded states.


  • Simple machines levers and pivots.


This mini sphere is made from colourful plastic.
