Does anyone know what this is and what I am supposed to do with it? It looks so interesting but on the other hand it actually only looks like a plastic sphere with metal balls in it. I am not into reading but I didn't find anything about how to do it in this harangue of description (nothing against this description I am just showing off words).
I couldn't find this article anywhere else online.

From the winning moves web site- news section:

iBall™
Imagine holding a prismatic sphere with seven metal balls inside and twirling, swirling, shaking or tossing it around – that’s iBall®. iBall® is an addictive, completely unique novelty that kids of all ages will enjoy. Try to get six balls spinning while one is not moving, or try to get them jumping up and down and from side to side or: Just pick it up and let your imagination flow and see what iBall® can do!
Ages: 8 and up; players: 1, SRP: $7.95; Available: April 2006

Leander, I had been curious about what this item was about too and this is the most descriptive info I could find about it. To be honest, sounds like more of a discovery toy than puzzle but that's just my impression. Hope this helps. :)

At ebay it says something about Kepler's and Newton's 3 laws of motion. Hehe. I only know Newton's first law of gravity. A body that is at rest tends to stay at rest. I found that to be true cause that's also what it says on the door of my room haha.

Anyway look I found a larger version of the iball for adults. hehehe
