The world's largest rubber band ball is an impressive sight to behold. It was created by Joel Waul of Lauderhill, Florida, and has been officially recorded as the world's largest rubber band ball by the Guinness World Records.
The rubber band ball started out as a simple hobby for Joel and has since become a Guinness World Record holder. Since its completion in 2008, the rubber band ball has grown to over 9,000 pounds, measuring over 9 feet tall and 8 feet wide. The ball consists of over 700,000 rubber bands, which can be found in sizes ranging from 1/4-inch to 1-inch in diameter.
The rubber band ball is made up of a variety of different colored bands and is a striking sight to behold. It has been featured in numerous publications and has been the subject of several documentaries. It has also been displayed in various museums around the world.
The construction process of the rubber band ball was not an easy task. It took Joel over eight years to complete the ball, with a majority of the bands being added one at a time. He used special tools to help with the placement of the bands, and also had to take special precautions in order to keep the ball from collapsing.
The ball has been put on display in many places, including the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum in Florida, the National Building Museum in Washington D.C., and the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It has also been featured in TV shows and movies, including the Travel Channel's “Epic Attractions”, the Discovery Channel's “Ripley's Believe it or Not”, and the movie “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian”.
The world's largest rubber band ball is an impressive feat of engineering and an amazing sight to see. It stands as a testament to Joel's dedication and hard work, and serves as an inspiration to all that anything can be accomplished with enough hard work and determination.
