    Interesting question. Something tells me it probably wouldn't work though.

    I don't think that would work. I think the trackball in there is designed specifically for that purpose and any other type of material wouldn't work. But hey you could always experiment if you're feeling brave

    if you can get it to grip the rollers it might work, but i don't think metal will.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well the rollers inside are magnetic...I think it might actually work...heck...I would try it if I had the right size ball! Go for it!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~lemme rephrase...the rollers inside have a magnetic cylinder on them

    I agree...the pearl is like mouse ball, where the ball actually has to spin the little plastic shafts. So I think plastic on metal would be too slick.
