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. We worked closely with our client to ensure every detail, down to the light animations and color palette was exactly what they dreamed of.
Client: Blizzard Entertainment
Locations: Anaheim, CA
Probius is a jam-packed probe, which is why we chose a wheelchair base, for the extra support and stability. His shiny exterior was achieved by hours of sanding for the perfect, automotive finish. As for special effects, Probius features custom lighting and sound effects that were activated by an Xbox remote, he has an articulating body and a camera with live stream 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.
