Right inside the 8 ball, we can easily see the blue liquid along with a white plastic icosahedral die in which each of them contains a certain statement embarked on it with the uplifted letters. As it gets turned over to let the transparent side be revealed, the die will float above and one message will show up at that time. Back to its history, the Magic 8 ball was actually found in 1946 by Abe Bookman.

According to this man, the ideal idea of creating this toy which has become the Magic 8 ball now started with Mary, the mother of Albert Carter who made up a similar device called Psycho-Slate in which the person can ask a question, close the lid, and wait for a few minutes later, one specific message will be shown or written on the chalkboard. Afterwards, the so-called Syco-Seer has been created based on that inspired device, but it hasn’t been a ball, but a cylinder only. What’s interesting here is that this device ran under the similar principles that are going to be applied to the Magic 8 ball.

With the hope of making the Syco-Seer cheaper than before, a smaller version was built up later with the number of dices that are reduced to one only, but this version has not gained any success until the time when the Brunswick Billiards employed Alabe Crafts to create the balls that look pretty much like the pool balls. This fortune teller cylinder has transformed into an 8 ball sphere with the name of the Magic 8 ball that was born after that.
