The Kyosho Space Ball flies like an R/C helicopter, but can bounce off obstacles with ease and even spread fragrances throughout the room
Aside from protecting the rotors and electronics, the frame also helps the Space Ball right itself on the ground
Kyosho is currently offering the Space Ball in black and orange color schemes through Japanese retailers
Almost a year ago, the Japanese Ministry of Defense made quite a splash when it revealed a spherical, remote-controlled aircraft that could zip around a room, roll along the ground, and even bounce off obstacles without losing control. But while it was mainly designed for search and rescue operations, many R/C enthusiasts took one look at that hovering Death Star and said, "I have got to get me one of those." Luckily, toy company Kyosho must have been listening, since it recently released a similar flying machine of its own for consumers. Kyosho's "Space Ball" can remain airborne while taking just as much punishment and even emits a fragrance to freshen up a room in the process.
