This design, adopting dynamics, is for a palm toy. Through the relationships among the quality, force and acceleration of the object, the steel ball in the capsule rolls and generates the moving acceleration by inclining the palm; then, the ball bumps against any terminal of the capsule and shows the inertia; finally, the inertia and acceleration together make the ball jump. Since the ball has a 50% probability to roll to any direction of the two in the capsule, this design further increases the fun of this toy.
