World Cup Soccer Ball 2014

With just six panels and a rough surface on the ball the new Brazuca ball seems to move faster then all the World Cup Balls ever created. Every year the new version of the World Cup soccer ball stirs everybody. Now Physicist put he ball to the test. World Cup soccer balls used to be almost the same as other soccer balls. They were stitched 32 panels and hand made. But the balls used in the World Cup tournaments  have been distinctive since 2006, when Adidas unveiled the Teamgeist, made of just 14 panels that had been glued together rather than stitched. The company has been introducing new World Cup balls ever since: the eight-panel Jabulani ball in 2010 and for the 2014 games—which began on June 12 in São Paulo, Brazil with the six-panel Brazuca.
