Get creative with a floating logo known as a "Flogos"

Have you ever heard of a "flogo?" It's a floating or flying logo, basically 3-D art that'll capture the imagination of kids and adults alike. And, it can all be yours to "wow" your guests at your next party. 

A Flogo is made up with compressed air, helium, water and Flogo juice. All the items are mixed together in a special made device built into a road case. The unit we have has a round 36" opening so we can produce Flogos up to 36" wide. When it's mixed together it produces a safe and 100% "green" foam that is white in color and it starts to rise in the unit. On top of the unit is where the magic happens, we place a cut out of the customer's logo or object and when the foam passing through it the gobo shapes the foam into the logo/object and a sweeper arm cuts the foam about every 15 secs and the new Flogo floats away. 

Flogos are great for outdoor events from concerts, car sales, grand openings, special events, sporting events, and many more. Great for inside like for concerts, corporate parties, sporting events, and much more.  Flogos can travel as far as 30 miles, Flogos will evaporate over time either in the air or on the ground once the helium runs out in the Flogo. The Flogo juice is design for non-slip and is safe if it falls into someone's drink or food. Flogos will capture the imagination of kids and adults of all ages, its 3-D art that adds that something to events.
