Qatar stealing ideas from the Simpsons?

Qatar is working on their promise to keep the WC stadiums cool in the middle of summer.

Now the Qataris have announced another cool twist to their hospitality – an artificial cloud to hover above the stadium and provide shade. The head of mechanical and industrial engineering at Qatar University said the cloud would be positioned by remote control and run on solar power.
