OTHER EFFECTS

 

JACOBS LADDER
If you’ve ever seen a Frankenstein movie you have probably seen a Jabcobs Ladder or “climbing arc”. The familiar “Bzzzzz….snap!” sound is a staple of old horror movies.
So how do they work? First two conductive metal rods are positioned in a rough “V” shape with a slight space between them at the base. A sufficient voltage differential is provided from a high voltage transformer to breakdown the air in the gap between the rods, at which point the electricity “jumps” the gap and creates an arc. If there is enough electric current or amperage available, the arc will resemble a flame, and be hot enough so that convection begins to pull it upwards. As the arc rises it lengthens until it gets to a point where the rails are so far apart that it cannot sustain itself. It then goes out and the whole process begins again at the bottom where the rods are closest together.

 

3D VIDEO & HOLOGRAMS:

Due to the nature of these effects, it is impossible to show a visual of this using the medium of the Internet. Please contact us for a real life demo.

 

BALLOON EFFECTS:

Effects with balloons are very safe and include the following:

  • Balloon Drops
  • Exploding Balloon Walls

  • Balloons can be filled with confetti, and then exploded from a remote location, showering the confetti down onto the crowd. Balloons walls and murals can be dissolved or changed by strategically located exploding balloons.

  • Balloon Lights
