Week TechVideo, 2009 #13 - Cine Room

It is the second time, I bring here a video showing a perfect integration of TECHNIC into a primarily SYSTEM building.

This time a Cine Room by Ricardo Oliveira (fellow from PLUG), where he made use of some TECHNIC stuff to build a working movie projector, for his latest creation. The Cine Room was built as a tribute and gift to a friend (Luis Santos), who helped Ricardo with preparation of the video for his Vending Machine.

Apart the very nice looking room, plenty of details and beautiful seats, the highlight goes for the projector mechanism implementation, made with TECHNIC parts.
Like any classic projector, it includes a light source, a shutter and a reel that carries the customized acetate film.
Note however that the secret here is the use of an 54930c02, electric light brick with yellow LED and one press button, which in one single piece simulate the traditional 'light source + shutter'. Thus the mechanism just needs to actuate on the press button at predefined intervals synched with each film frame, that's running simultaneously, to lit the scene.

Se it in action, below...

The video is again very well done and the slightly scratched B&W film, gave it a special old cinema touch.

You may also find additional photos showing the details for this MOC, at Ricardo's BS folder.

Genial and Kudos for Ricardo!
