way fuckin cool….

….especially if your an audio/video geek.

this a photo of the lighting controls for the grand ballroom in the park hyatt hotel in philly.

the event i’m producing (you remember, it’s called wild about widgets) is being held in this ballroom (fun fact, hillary clinton had her party in this room when she won pennsylvania). at the site visit the other day I asked “where are the lighting controls”? they took me into a whole other room and showed me this. wozers.

turns out thomas edison himself designed and installed it. when the property finally replaces it (or it finally conks out) it will be given to the edison museum. oh and this is only about half of it!

  3. Edison? It must be direct current. Awesome!

    The Park Hyatt is the old Bellvue Hotel, right? That’s been there forever. But I didn’t know about the Edison-installed lighting. Neato!

  5. CJ Says:

    That’s a bit overwhelming.
