It’s been a busy month here at BPI, starting with the grand opening of the Water Cube downtown, followed by the smallest member of our team turning three! Her birthday presents included a puzzle featuring guys in hard hats (just like her dad!), a camera, and a tutu. Also a cake with math on it – she’s a well-rounded kid.
Immediately after the birthday festivities, Ben jumped into work on two different custom Horatio installations, which included finding and playing with some used metal halide lamps: he needed to figure out how to monitor the life span of similar lamps that will be integrated with one of the Horatios. Being the geek that he is, he was super excited to find that Carnegie Mellon’s facilities department had boxes of old lamps lying around for the taking… (For scale reference, each of those lamps is about 9 inches long.)
To round out the last week, Ben also did a pre-inspection for a school district that he’ll be doing rigging inspections for soon. Summer is the season for inspections, since so many theaters are dark!
