Zero-G furniture   (0)  [vote for, against]
For theme parties

Basically rentable*, simulated furnishings which are, in fact, custom-made, helium-filled balloons.

Throw a space-themed party and enjoy the "zero-g" atmosphere while balloon glasses, plants, books, tables, pictures, lamps, pets, statuettes, pens, etc float around and amuse your guests. Deposit required. Not recommended for smokers, dart players or gun clubs.

*Because few people would need/want to own any.
(Background: Just bought a flying saucer-shaped balloon for the kids. Aside from looking like a flying saucer, the neatest thing about it is that it is nearly neutrally buoyant. Tossing the balloon around like a Frisbee inspired this idea)

I read in New Scientist how some crazy food scientist made zero G Meringue and Pavalova by puffing them up with helium. He had to do something to ensure the food had a closed-cell structure (extra egg?). At a picnic the floating food frightend some passers by....

jutta: at least this one's not helium-filled metal.

Helium filled food gives me gas. You could suffocate in a room with too much helium. The furniture would have to be VERY leakproof, and if you fell off you could bust your gas outlet. Take the hose!

The idea isn't to use the furniture/accessories. They're atmosphere only; something for the guests to play with. Sorry if I didn't make that clear.
