Las Vegas Springs Preserve – “Night Life” & “Windows on the Past”

2005-2007: Las Vegas, NV

Viewscopes

Designer: West Office Exhibition Design

These two exhibits use our custom viewers in both the 10” and 12” versions. In “Night Life”, an audio track directs you to “find” nocturnal animals in diorama. Since the viewer knows its current pan and tilt the computer provides a virtual view as if you were looking through night vision scopes.

In “Windows on the Past” the physical scene is a ruined Pueblo dwelling but as you move the viewer you can explore what it may have looked like 1000 years ago.

10' and 12' viewers
Photo 1 is a view of both the 10” and 12” viewer. The hole in the back is for a camera to allow the superimposition of a live shot on the virtual background. In the picture on the right you can see it takes a lot of parts to make a viewer. All of these parts are machined and welded in our shop which gives you an idea of BBI’s capacity.
 
Viewer's Shaft
Photo 2 is of the inside of the viewer’s shaft. Note the image is upside down with the main bearing normally at the top of the tube supporting the monitor yoke.
