Universal Studios Hollywood Creates
World's Largest 3D King Kong Attraction Using Screen Goo
There are quite a few projects where we cannot discuss as far as Screen Goo being
used at. Projects done by large systems integrators working for
Universal Studios, Walt Disney, etc. etc. are some of these projects
where details are kept under cover so that these companies protect their
intellectual properties and know-how. Now that others, such as Sound &
Communications magazine, reveal this information to the public, we can tag
along and plug ourselves into this stream of news.
Screen Goo is being used at some of the world's largest 3D projects -
several properties make Screen Goo attractive for applications such as
these - The ability to make any screen shape or size is one of them. The
fact that most 3D screens on the market today are fragile - some of them
to the touch! - is another amongst many.
So, when Universal Studios, Hollywood, California wanted to re-create
the popular King Kong exhibit which was destroyed due to a fire on their
back lot during Spring of 2008, it was decided not to build a new Kong
animatronic but, rather, to update the popular attraction by replacing
it with King Kong 360 3D, an immersive multimedia experience utilizing
the latest technologies including two giant Screen Goo Ultra Silver 3D
screens at its core.
The King Kong 360 3D park opened on July 1, 2010 and features a gigantic
3D projection system with two 187-foot-wide by 40-foot-high Screen Goo
Ultra Silver 3D screens within a football-field-sized soundstage.
