Anyone Can Walk On Water

Wednesday, February 3, 2010 17:30 GMT

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Move over Jesus, now anyone can walk on water.

The Water Walking Ball is a giant, see-through, inflatable ball that allows anyone to walk on water by simply getting inside.

You unzip it, crawl in, blow it up, and voila – you’re in a floating human hamster ball.

Edvard Daztyan from uswaterball.com – makers of the miracle worker – says the device uses a special high- strength plastic capable of supporting a person’s weight while staying afloat.

Because the ball does take some getting used to, Daztyan says most people walk on all fours like hamsters inside before getting their sea legs.

Although running around in the ball is a great workout, the contraption probably won’t spawn a new fitness fad.

That’s because the air needs to be changed every five minutes or else the ball will fill with carbon dioxide, causing the user to pass out.
