Hoberman mini sphere transforming globe

This became a very popular toy in the latter part of the 20th century. The sphere consists of jointed pieces of plastic. By pulling outwards the diameter of the sphere can be doubled. Perhaps fewer people realise that, if you roll the sphere along a carpet, it opens up and then folds up again.
