THE MAKING OF THE HYDRO-TESSALATRON

"As if it were something out of a Jules Vern science fiction..."

That is the impression someone might get after seeing this beautiful center-piece to the Falls View Casino in Niagara Falls, Canada. A creation of pure genius incorporating 360° LED video in the center column,  video content (changeable for seasonal or marketing... basically unlimited!), fountain effects, sub-sonic audio, sound effects, fiber-optics, and state-of-the-art laser.

The water flows and cascades in and over the funnel-shaped, lighted-from-within buckets and appear to turn the hydro-electric generators in the base. As they turn, the generators speed up, crackle and hum, vibrating the floor and gives the guests an exciting and realistic sense of the magnificent power of hydro-electricity in action.  What a show!

An awesome blending of art and technology!

Designed by Lester Creative, Inc., built in California by Technifex, Inc. , all the structural elements had to be designed for maintenance access and had to be disassembled, shipped, and transported on freeways, through the casino lobby, then reassembled on-site.

Air'n Art Designs was brought on-board from the incept to head the 3D structural and mechanical design, as well as the production, shipping logistics, and installation efforts.
