The Orange Balls Of Japan

The bohan ball, or more commonly referred to as the 'orange ball', is Japan's most popular and best selling theft deterrent device. It sells for about $15-$20 Canadian dollars, and apparently comes in a wide variety of colours, orange being the most commonly used.
In the event of a crime the orange ball, is hurled at the escaping culprit. On impact the ball breaks and releases a florescent ink, marking the offender, making them easily identifiable by law enforcement. This is similar to the exploding dye packs often seen in bank robbery movies.  Check out the video below...
