Spark will be showing the public the design for the PAL-V (Personal Air and Land Vehicle) and Cup-a-Soup Mini. The PAL-V is a revolutionary vehicle that drives like a car and flies like a gyrocopter. Spark is developing this ‘flying car' with PAL-V Europe. The project is currently in the prototype construction phase.

The new Cup-a-Soup Mini is a compact, modern designed soup dispenser for use in offices or schools. The professional machine dispenses, at the touch of a button, just the right amount of soup of your choice. Spark developed the Cup-a-Soup Mini for Unilever together with Veromatic, specialists in vending machines.
