Here is our review of the ODD Ball.
The first ball in the world to make music, ODD Ball makes playing with music easy and fun. Essentially, it’s a bouncy ball that you can bounce, tap or smash to make music. ODD Ball measures the intensity of the bounce, so the harder you bounce it, the higher the note or the louder the sound. With a silicone outer layer and a super strong protective core, ODD Ball is the most durable instrument in the world and challenges people to let loose and get creative to find their sound.
This transforms the way players can approach making music and allows them to experiment with styles and beats that wouldn’t be obvious on traditional instruments. By encouraging the discovery of music through play, ODD Ball makes music more accessible and requires no prior instruction or musical ability. It is the perfect way to introduce those who may be apprehensive about learning an instrument to the art of making music.
What’s in the box?
The box contains the ODD Ball in a really cool tin, a charging cable and some instructions.
A Closer Look
The ODD Ball App
Install the ODD Ball app to control the sounds coming from the ball.
The first thing to do is charge up the ODD Ball, so make sure that you do this before you are ready to play.
Once charged you need to pair the ODD Ball with your device (once the app has been downloaded). Just follow the steps to do this (including bouncing the ball to start the pairing sequence).
Then you are ready to go – you can add your own sounds to the ball or you can choose the quick play function. Whatever you choose you can start to make music and record your what you do for playback later. You can even add your own sounds to the ball.
The harder you bounce the ball, the higher the note or the louder the sound – it becomes a challenge to see just how loud you can get it.
The ODD Ball is so much fun and will bring hours of enjoyment – what music will you create?
The ODD Ball is available now priced around £99, although at the time of writing the review it was on-sale for £79. It also comes in four colours – Black, Punch, Turquoise and Cool Gray.
