Those Philips designers know what is hip, smoking only the best weed. That must explain how they dreamed up this Magic Video Ball. Shaking it causes video snowflakes to swirl around, and out of the mist fades the next clip you've uploaded. Each video selection is accompanied by chirping birds and soothing sounds, furthering the ethereal effect.

It resembles a magical orb from a utopian science fiction movie, a cross between those dopey eightball fortune-telling thingamajigs and a snow globe. This is just a concept so far; there's no word on whether it will ever be produced. At the right price, this could be a slam-dunk hit, finding a place on chichi coffee tables across the globe.
