The ball "uses an energy harvester inside that swings like a pendulum whenever the ball moves". Does this mean that it moves in an erratic pattern because of the moving mass inside? It might be annoying to the ball players.

Lets hope it doesn't stop before crossing the goal line compare to normal ball :)
