Almost any object is possible to make with inflatable technology :-)
This is an inflatable Chinook helicopter, it was made for the Royal Military Tournament: http://britishmilitarytournament.com/

The biggest issue we have had with inflatables is getting the material printed on. This was hand painted with special paints to keep it looking authentic even though it was 1/3rd the size of a normal Chinook helicopter. 

On Wednesday we attended the Visual Merchandising and Display show:
 There were some great visual display companies there and we managed to catch up with Millington Associates:
Minki Balinki:

And lots others :-)

In 2009 Mahani and I worked together on a project for Fake Bake. Our mission was to create an exciting spray tan booth that is portable and easy for home tan set up. We tried many styles and ended up with the final gold one below, this was a prototype that was later mass produced...






I just found a video of how to set this booth up. Plus, lots more on similar projects to come!!

This was a fantastic project that was done for Craylands...
What a great project to work on! The print on the inside is butterflies, the windows are made out of colored acrylic and as you can see this type of structure is perfect for community events. It is an A-symmetrical "tripod" Photos provided by PenttinenSchone

Just finished this Knight/black horse chess piece, its based on the larger design we did for the Secret Garden Party. Unfortunately we did not get commissioned for the Secret Garden Party piece, but we decided to make this little version anyway :-). This just got sent to Malaysia today for our sister company called Betadome: http://betadome.com.my/ 

Betadome is showing their new dome to the public on the 12th and 13th of April at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort in Kuala Lumpur. This horse will be auctioned off during the event.

Here is a giant blood vessel inflatable tunnel for a science exhibit in America... The pictures are a little dark because we inflated this in the street outside a studio we used to work in. It was pretty late at night cause the deadlines for projects are often very tight so we work most hours of the day.
