Need To Know
Blizzard came to us with the goal of fabricating an interactive, remote-controlled Probius, a popular character from the franchise. This prop was stocked with only the coolest and highest quality electronics and special effects for Blizzcon 2017 in Anaheim, CA. We worked closely with our client to ensure every detail, down to the light animations and color palette, was exactly what they dreamed of.
Probius is a jam-packed probe, which is why we chose a wheelchair base for extra support and stability. His shiny exterior was achieved by hours of sanding for the perfect automotive finish. The special effects, activated by an Xbox remote, included custom lighting and sound effects, an articulating body, and a camera with Livestream capabilities. The LED lighting was programmed to animate in tandem with the various sound effects. Probius was a turnkey operation, from design to programming, to onsite event assistance. We took the headache out of production so our client could enjoy Blizzcon 2017 with an awesome custom prop.
