This is the coolest juggling idea I've seen in a long time.

Remarkable. Must be a bear traveling to gigs with his giant clear cone!

Please elaborate: Not "exactly new" as in someone else did it first or this video has been around a while? (It sure is new to me!)

What I can't figure out is where he got a giant clear plastic cone. How would you even go about making one? I figure it must be a giant hopper for some industrial use, but it still seems like a very unusual item.

Jeff,

So how much would that cost, and what would your commission be ;-)

Greg Kennedy has been exploring a range of innovative approaches to the art of juggling for quite some time, including juggling inside a Box, the cone etc.

The juggling inside a cone reminded me of this other chap juggling inside a triangle:

The chap in the youtube Dave pointed us to is Michael Moschen, a high school classmate of Penn Jillette. Moschen won a MacArthur Genius grant in 1990 for his highly innovative approach to juggling.
