Is it a bird? A plane? No, it's a Flogo!

As kids, most of us spent time lying in the grass, watching clouds roll by and imagining the shapes we could see in the fluffy white masses.

Now, one company aims to indulge those flights of fancy by actually making "clouds" in the shapes of, well, anything, from the Atlanta Braves' tomahawk to Mickey Mouse's iconic head.

What happens when someone's Flogo ad campaign demands the sky be filled with flying saucers?
