THE FLOATING, SPINNING BALLOON

floating, spinning balloon w/ hair dryer

There is no helium, but it flies!

It's almost eerie, the balloon floating in space and spinning furiously like some spacecraft out of a science fiction story! Pointing the hairdryer -- it doesn't even have to be directly under the balloon -- gives you remote control to hover and land. It's quick and easy to make, too.
