This Accessible 54-Part Puzzle Is Actually A Deflate-Proof Soccer Ball

Here in the US, soccer sits a tier below the likes of football, basketball, and baseball. However, for the rest of the world, it remains one of the most affordable, approachable, and engaging pastimes available. In fact, according to FIFA’s Big Count survey, there are some 265 million soccer players worldwide.

While balls are often easy enough to source, their upkeep is a different story. Granted, a pump may be all that’s needed to get back to play, but there are many countries where reinflation isn’t a feasible reality. Luckily, Japanese-based design studio Nendo has just the solution: the ‘My Football’ kit. Comprised of 54 individual parts, it’s designed to be used without any air whatsoever. Instead, it relies on a combination of recycled polypropylene and elastomeric resin in order to be just as bouncy as a regular ball. In the event that a piece breaks or falls off, the interlocking structure prevents the ball from coming undone. When it’s time for a fix, it’s as simple as snapping the part into place. And when you consider that each kit comes flat-packed with easy-to-follow instructions, it makes for an offering that’s truly accessible to everyone. Click the link below for more.
