Or
A scientifically balanced device to permit the user to develop the unique capability to become coordinated, providing the time invested and users initial coordination capabilities to contact juggle.

You control it actively through hand motions, by a technique known as 'contact juggling'. What makes the illusion work is that the ball is a sphere that looks the same no matter what the angle.

A fushigi ball works the same way a baseball or any other ball works.. It rolls around on your body. There's nothing special about it except for the fact that it costs 20 dollars and the people selling it call it by a fancy name.

Fushigi itself is an art form known as contact juggling.
