The TechnoMarine Underwater Night Club

Of all the places you might meet a significant other, underwater is probably the last place that springs to mind. Hence, I guess, the novelty of an underwater nightclub. Created as a viral campaign for TechnoMarine Underwater watches, the unique nightclub "launch" was filmed at a military training facility with navy divers and the set was built 14 feet (4 m) underwater.

The inflatable church, pub, nighclub, synagogue, mosque …

March 27, 2006 Inflatable structures hold enormous promise as lightweight, temporary constructions of all types, as is evidenced by the advanced work currently being done by the United States military. Spanish company Innovations Xtreme Inflatables has developed the technology to create incredibly detailed inflatables and is now offering its services to create inflatables for sale or hire in an incredibly diverse range that includes an inflatable church, pub, nightclub, castle, a White House, Synagogue and even a Mosque. Having spent many years developing the technology, the company is now also offering a range of custom one-offs that could find application in many promotional budgets. All the inflatable buildings can be deflated to fit inside a small van – even the world’s first inflatable nighclub which holds over 2000 people.

Like if you can’t get to the church on time, you now have the option of having it come to you.  Read More
