A Hypnotic Look at How Tennis Balls Are Made

Over the years, we've shown you various household objects being made--everything from crayons and ink, to vinyl records, old fashioned books and paper. Today, you can get a mesmerizing glimpse into how tennis balls are made. Created by Benedict Redgrove for ESPN, the short film above shows "the manufacturing process of [Wilson] tennis balls for the US Open." Combined, it takes 24 different processes to make the final ball. And it's fun to watch.
