Things to Come — airborne Jellyfish

An object of absolutely no theological significance, but a certain mesmerizing charm — The AirJelly comes with a major plateful of technical detail in German. From what I can make out, It claims to be unique, driven by small lithium ion cells (like a mobile) and harnessing the “Fin Ray” effect, with helium lift.

It’s great to find something that combines that high a technical specification with absolute lack of obvious practical utility. Could this beautiful object have any potential Liturgical use or significance?

Not sure about liturgical uses but I'm sure I could think of something for ascensiontide!

It puts me rather more in mind of The Prisoner in some kind of version 2.0!
