Question:
I am trying to get a hold of balls made of a material named norbonene, which does not bounce when dropped. Do you know from where might obtain them?



Replies:
Dan,

These balls are known commercially as "happy and sad balls" and you are asking for the "sad balls". Arbor Scientific carries them and I'm sure other suppiers.
