Laminar Sciences News

A Brand Name for our fluid:  Laminar Sciences Corp ran a naming contest for our fluid at Maker Faire 2016.  We got many entries that used forms of "Chroma," "Kaleido," "Rainbow" and "Mezmerizing" in them.  At the time, our panel chose "ChromaFlow" as the winning contest entry.   Over the next year, however, two things happened: research showed that several other businesses, and many artists, were using the term "ChromaFlow" for their products or creations; and, we test marketed a batch of our little squares as "KaleidoKubes" - and the buying public seemed to like the name.   We then performed a small market test on the term "KaleidoFlow" and it worked well.  So Laminar Sciences mgmt has decided to create and use the term KaleidoFlow™ Rheoscopic Fluid for our fluid products.
