Float Factor enables Mystery Pods to float in mid-air through the application of Twinks. Later on it was discovered through Mr. Spook's Mistake (made when he tried to get rid of the Mystery Pods) that Slats could also be affected. This use of the Float Factor has not been much followed upon, but may be related to the Float Force discovered in "Remember Here When You Are There!"
Mr. Spook hates everything to do with the Mystery Pods, and the Float Factor is no exception. Professor Garbanzo is fascinated by it. It is an integral element the Secret Sketch that enables Beanish's "jumps" to visit Dreamishness.
