A man from Henan province has been “wow-ing” China with his artificial cloud-making machine. The magic happens when the machine combines helium with a foamy liquid, producing a cloud of bubbles that can float over a hundred metres high in the air.
The man has made a business of renting it out to events in China and apparently is doing quite well. CCTV News says (somewhat ambitiously, perhaps) that his business brings in up to 10,000 yuan per day and is growing in popularity.
Of course, he’s not the only person in the world making helium-foam clouds. If you fancy having a go at making one of these lucrative machines then check out this video from “The Tonight Show” where Kevin Delaney explains the science behind the cloud.
Now all China has to do is master fake snow.
