Bownce is a simple yet highly effective and cross-generational sports device that combines health, flexibility, fun and community. Even a brief game with Bownce is enough for a training experience that involves all muscle groups, improves coordination, and gives you an energy boost.

The design challenge was to combine all the technical solutions in a small volume of the ball and floor fixture, keep the ball weight under 84 grams, and create a completely new user experience since it is a totally new product for the market.
