Inventor of the Babble Ball is on a roll with a high-tech pet toy.

James Gick

James Gick’s world is filled with mindless babble, and he likes it that way. Gick, 58, of Laguna Niguel is not only the president of Pet Qwerks Inc., but he is also the inventor of the Babble Ball, an interactive toy that rivets the attention of pets. How? It talks and makes noises when touched, thanks to technology that is so sensitive that it can be triggered by a pet breathing on it or just by the vibration of a pet walking nearby.
