Half dance, half juggling, half mime, half magic....I'm a contact juggler, not a mathematician

So you know that there are various form of contact in juggling, so i do cj and a bit of contact staff, and a few days it gave me some motivacion to explore another forms just to see what form could i mix with cj with a ball. So i thought conontact juggling rings, and contact devil sticks. So with a ring it is easy to imagine how could we do it, and with devil sticks use your hands instead of the sticks.
So my question is, do you were can i find information, videos, tutorials (would be interesting) about this? Im not interested in tossing rings or sticks just in contact these instruments.
I know you tube seems to be a good place to search but i found few videos on these two types, saw a video of Hector Jimenez with a simply beastiful routine with contact rings and ball, and saw some guy doing contact sticks, but he was very fast so a bit dificult to catch the moves.
Still i will try to search this by my means, surely it could be a pure form of learning, but hey a few hints could put us on the right track.

So it may not strictly be contact but for fascinating object manipulation you should check out the Visionbot series:;=view&id;=21&Itemid;=39

Scary download size but episodes 1 and 3 are well worth it. Another scary download and mainly toss juggling but check out Addicted as well:

For contact staff MCP's website is really helpful, nice clear tutorials:

I think a lot of this comes down to improvising, playing around and experimenting with different props and seeing what you can find.
Now all gatherymost to amuse it and have a tilty elbow or a nice cuffle-oteedee - Oh Yes!

Sometimes at work when bored I try to contact a wide roll of masking tape, and this has got me thinking about tube contact, a clear tube about 4" in diameter and about 3 - 4" long.
