Hello,

Does anybody know the difference between the K-Ball as seen here and the Crazee Braille Ball as seen here? Who made the original? Is one of them considered a KO?

For the matter, is the Black Joker Revolution a KO of Meffert's Platypus?

I don't want to point fingers, I just want to be informed. :)

If Crazee Thingz is a KO company, then I'm sorry and I will remove this post (or be thankful if an administrator removes this post).

Thanks,

Skarabajo.

Hello,

Somebody answered my question on behalf of CraZee ThingZ Ltd. The employee said that they are both the same product, but one has a new packaging and slightly different colors. They say that the K-Ball was the original product but CraZee ThingZ Ltd has taken over the rights for this item and are now the manufactures of the K-Ball (renamed the CraZee Ball!). So that's that. Case closed for the K-Ball. I didn't asked about the Platypus. I own the one from Meffert's and I'm very happy with it.

Skarabajo.

If you want to go back even further, I have a k-brain that was purchased from Meffert's back around 2000. He also put out a K-can with domino pips on it, and a golfball like key chain that used the kball mechanism.

The platapus is a different kettle of fish.
