Typhoon Light Balls are a group of giant ovoids that continuously turn as they float and sink. When they are pushed by a person or recieve an impact, they change color and produce a tone unique to that color. 


The surrounding ovoids are autonomous - when an ovoid is pushed over by a person, it rises back up on its own as it changes color, shining brightly and producing a tone. The surrounding ovoids also respond one after another, continuously changing to the same color and emitting the same tone.


The Typhoon Light Balls and ovoids can change into a total of twelve colors that can only be produced by light - nine blurred colors (light in water, sunlight on water plants, morning glow, morning sky, sky at twilight, peach, plum, iris, and spring maple), and three flattening colors (red, green, and blue).
