Friends have made billiards more enjoyable after they started using Emoji balls.
In an article written by Sonali Ranjit of Bored Panda, it was disclosed that the writer’s friend created the hand-painted Emoji balls so they can use it on their new pool table.
“Last week, we got a new pool table at work! So of course, my friend, who is an artist under the name Winigreeni, had to make a set of lovingly hand-painted pool balls starring her favorite emojis (Emoji),” Ranjit shared.
Emoji is a set of ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and web pages. The characters in the set exist in various genres; including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, and animals.
Originating on Japanese mobile phones in the late 1990s, Emoji became increasingly popular worldwide since their international inclusion in Apple’s iPhone, which was followed by similar adoption by Android and other mobile operating systems. The emoji came from Japanese “e” or “picture” and “moji” or “character”. The apparent resemblance to the English words “emotion” and “emoticon” is just a coincidence.
A lot of Emoji products have been in the market for a while now. For instance, the products that are sold by the EmojiStuff.
“We got our start in 2013 by creating the Emoji Input extension for Google Chrome, which is, and always has been 100 percent free. After the popularity of our Emoji plugin skyrocketed, and we had about 30,000 users, many friends started suggesting we charge money for it. However, we instead chose to create EmojiStuff, and let our users have a great place to buy fine emoji products instead!” Emoji Stuff shared on its site.
EmojiStuff sells Emoji pillows, stuffed animals, cushions, buttons, stickers, pins, puzzle, Christmas ornament, car accessory, iPhone home button, clothes, backpacks, Greeting Cards, and beach balls, among others.
