Flogos Take Off

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Science


Francisco Guerra, a special effects whiz with the company Snowmasters, has come up with a fine alternative to ugly billboards. His idea, named Flogos, are foamy clouds that can be as large as four feet across and shaped like logos. He does this with a machine that creates and slices them, similar to the Fun Factory used for Play-doh. Because they are made of tiny air-filled bubbles combined with helium, they are also good for the environment.  One Flogo can go as far as 30 miles and as high as 20,000 feet, in as little as 15 seconds. The Flogo Machine has already caught the attention of Disney, who will be using one at Florida’s Walt Disney World next month to send Mickey Heads over the park.

Pretty damn cool!  I want one for my wedding next year!

It would be great to see this thing in action!  Francisco chose a great name for it, and it’s good for the environment!

Well would they be a hazard in air,20,000 feet is pretty high,wha tif they come in the way of landing or takingoff aircrafts.
They certainly look great though.

Wow, very creative!  I love the fact that they dont leave any trace—they just pop and disappear when they hit something.  A very environmentally friendly option.

I’d like to see this in action. Its neat that you can make it any shape that you want. I want one.
