About


BodEBall pronounced  Bod-E-Ball is bringing sports balls into the future. This multifunctional ball adds a twist of extra fun to any game and is about the size of a standard racquetball, making it ideal for a variety of sports. BodEBall reacts to hits with various lights, letting players know how soft or hard they are playing. BodEball is also the offical game ball of a new sport being created called BodEball.

BodEBall is the sports accessory that helps anyone get into the spirit of the game. The versatile size makes it great for racquetball, handball, paddleball, playing catch, or any game you love. Playing BodEball is a workout on its own so you will exercise and keep you fit and healthy and alive. We set out to make the most futuristic technologically advanced smart ball to date. In order to create the highest level of game play humanly possible combining science and sports to reach the pinnacle of excitement and fun. 

To build the sport of BodEball by providing everything needed to play including your competition.

The next time you are watching baseball or football or basketball on your TV, take a moment to imagine what people like you will be watching in a hundred years. How about two-hundred? Two-hundred years ago, baseball wasn’t even a blip on people’s radars. Football and basketball weren’t even thoughts yet. As closely intertwined into our lives as these sports may feel, they are very new in the human timeline and extremely new in the cosmic timeline. Sports are always changing, the old giving way to the new, and to stay ahead of the curve, you need to think creatively.

We have created BodEBall in order to push forward into the future of sports. Our vision is one that emphasizes fun and innovation as equal partners in the development of the most cutting-edge games and activities, and we are confident that everyone is going to love what we have come up with. From sports enthusiasts to gamers to kids to office workers to teens to dancers to athletes to content creators and beyond, people the world over are going to quickly fall in love with BodEBall and its bright and flashing colors.

BodEBall lights up the game with its variety of colors.  1 bounce turns BodEball on neon blue. Once on a soft hit makes the ball flash neon green for half a second while a hard hit gives you a neon red glow. Extremely hard hits are rewarded with a full second of bright white light (and the opportunity to show off your strength). Players can compete to maintain hit strengths, whether it’s a challenge to keep the ball glowing green or red for as long as you can.

The best part about BodEball is the entire group can get involved. Get your group of friends together for a night of fun or invite the younger members of your family to get into a new sport. BodEBall is the sports accessory that helps anyone get into the spirit of the game. The versatile size makes it great for racquetball, handball, paddleball, playing catch, or any game you love. The entire family can join the game or kids can get their friends together for regular games. There is no age limit to BodEball as it is made for everybody.

No matter what your favorite sport is – or even if you usually prefer video games – BodEBall is a ball that you will take to immediately. You and your friends can use BodEBall to enhance any of the sports that you already know and enjoy or even make up a new sport or game to go along with it. You choose how to use BodEBall, but get ready: by its nature, BodEBall tends to stir up people’s competitive juices!

Because BodEBall is approximately the size of a standard racquetball, it is suitable for use with many different games. Just a few of its potential uses are:

* Test how strong you are! BodEBall will light up to tell you how hard you have hit it. Who can hit it the hardest?

* Play in the dark! The lights on BodEBall mean that the game can go on long after the sun has gone down.

* Handball, paddle ball, or a good old round of catch!

If you have ever struggled to get yourself up off the couch and moving, BodEBall is the tool that you need. Adding light and color to your workout routine, you will no longer feel like fitness is a chore. Rather, it will become something that you look forward to, one of the most fun if not the most fun part of your day.

There is a reason that technology seems to have a hold over people: it’s the flashing lights, which act on the reward system inside our brains. Video game and website developers know this, and they have become adept at using it. You to can use it – for your own benefit, rewarding yourself whenever you take the time to get up and exercise with BodEBall.


                                            BodEball the Sport

BobdEball the sport is a non-contact hybrid of American handball, soccer, and mixed martial arts. Whereas in handball you can only strike the ball with your hand, and in soccer you can only strike the ball with your foot, in BodEball you can use any part of your body to hit the ball. The court will be slightly larger than a handball court, but with neon lines that have sensors that will indicate if the ball was out of bounds. The wall will be touchscreen as well. You will be able to play from one to six players. On the sides of the court, there will be curved trampolines that will allow you to bounce back into the court if you happen to dive for a corner shot. This environment will open up the door for some of the most spectacular plays you can imagine while pushing the limits of the human BodE. There are thousands of new moves in the ether just waiting to be developed, and BodEball will bring them to life.

Currently, we are turning to you Kickstarter, for help raising the funds that we need to manufacture, market, and distribute BodEBall on a large scale. Our funding goal is $250,000, which will cover all our costs bringing BodEBall to market. Its not everyday you here about a new sport being started be part of history and who knows with a level playing field you might just be the next BodEball champion. To say thanks to all our generous contributors, we are offering BodEBall at a significant discount exclusively through this campaign.

Sports enthusiasts ourselves, we are always brainstorming new ways to make sports and fitness fun. We are also always speculating on the future of sports. What will baseball look like in a hundred years? Will football still be the cultural juggernaut that it is today? No one knows! We all have some idea of the future, some idea of what we think the sands of time will bring, and BodEBall encompasses that collective vision in a way that’s different and fun.

BodEball is unique in that there are no other multi sport balls on the market with pressure sensors that change color. BodEball is an extremely versatile ball that is entertaining and a good workout for all ages.

Risks and challenges

I had this idea over a decade ago but at the time the technology was not there. On the heel of 2020 the technology exists and the wait is almost over it is our responsibility to the next generation to give this to them. There are always potential delays anytime you are working with outside manufacturing partners, but we are confident that we can deliver BodEBall according to the schedule that we have set for ourselves. If any unforeseen challenges do arise, we will be sure to keep all our contributors in the loop. This is a product that we care about deeply, and we are going to do everything that we need to do to get it out to you. I waited over 10 years and already invested over 50k out of my pocket so please be patient , good things come to those who wait this will be great.
