COVID-19 Spacehopper

spacehopper modelled on corona virus

Spacehoppers were a popular children's activity toy from the 1970s (see link if you don't know)

This idea sees their revival only they now take the form of an enlarged version of the corona virus pathogen, complete with those knobs and rubbery protuberances that are always depicted in renderings of the lipid coated individual particles.

Happy children (and adults) can merrily bounce along astride their inflated virus ball, which by being translucent reveals its internal DNA strands proportionally enlarged to fill the space.

COVID-19 Spacehopper comes in bright blue, but other colours are available.

Delux version features strings of internal flashing led lights

what could be better? [xenzag, Mar 28 2020]


       Having reached a certain number of ideas here, I had intended making this my final contribution to this place, but then I thought of something else..... but after that, who knows.... I have other venues, and now that Max has gone, the sense of fun, humour and intellectual capacity of the place has just been halfed, (for me anyway) and it's just not the same.

       Will it change its coating when it's passed between users ?

       Nononono, harm can come to persons of the male persuasion from such things ...   

       Then again it sounds just the sort of thing [xen] would be delighted to charge her many Discerning Gentleman Clients extra for ....

       //a certain number of ideas// I'm starting to worry, I didn't know about this number.

       Sorry, you weren't told. It's a very, very big number - bigger than ten - and it would only have worried you, and you'd have got upset again and then you'd have to be sent ... away ... again, for more ... treatment.   

       You don't want any more treatment, do you ? No, you don't, that's right. Just sit quietly.

       //bigger than ten// aha! Caught you out this time! Now we know for sure that you are just making things up. //bigger than ten// I've never heard such tripe in all my life. Bigger than ten my left foot. Ha!

       Oh no, knew it would upset him ... Nurse ! NURSE ! Put the screens round the bed, and tell the doc he needs to bring the big syringe this time ... you know, the one the horse-doctor left ...   

       Now, now, calm down, you're upsetting the others ...
