The Tequesta Interactive Bowling Alley is a tasteful blend of old-world style with new-world tech that offers a gaming experience completely unique in it’s category. This bowling alley pushes the boundaries of traditional gaming to the next level. With 51,510 LED DMX controlled Madrix channels, and a suite of 54 Chauvet concert lights within a 3,000sf wing of a private waterfront Palm Beach home, this is unlike anything we’ve seen or created before. Three 6,000lm Sony laser projectors accompany three Sony cameras allow us to map each bowling lane and deliver visual content linked to gaming outcomes. Simply rolling the ball can affect the images projected on the lane and depending on the scene, it can affect the entire room. STRIKE! You got it. The client entertains distinguished guests and diplomats throughout the year and they wanted the ability to showcase their own content and branded events on the walls, lanes, and LEDs. Multiple scenes that are fun and tasteful with the ability create their own.
An armada of controlled concert lights were installed in the floor, walls, and ceiling to wash and transform the 3,000sf space. In order to projection map the bowling lanes, custom scaffolding was created to securely mount 3 Sony 6,000lm laser projectors in the ceiling. With accompanying cameras, the use of TouchMagix interactive display software, and Brunswick’s proprietary scoring software, we’re able to trigger graphics for downed pins, bowler performance, and gaming outcomes. This gives BPS the ability to take responsive projection mapping using original content and create completely unique bowling environments for our client. For original graphic design elements, BPS used Cinema4D, HoudiniFX, After Effects, and FCPX to edit and deliver additional dynamic imagery. The entire package offers our client the ability to host and brand fundraisers and parties, as well as spend a relaxing afternoon with subtle scenes and good music.
