This week, the Project Blackbox Tour in the Americas is in Reno at the HPC convention (where our StorageTek 5800 is taking the world by storm). Dan Campbell sent me these beautiful pictures from Calgary last week though.
Here is a shot of the cab and skyline:
Note that this shows the generator connections from the back of the semi. They connect up to the Project Blackbox tour unit and the chiller.
Here is a picture of a group of tour attendees outside of Project Blackbox along with the Calgary skyline again:
That is from the bed-level of the semi looking down towards the doors of the Project Blackbox tour unit.
I have many more pictures from Dan in the SmugMug Gallery that I keep with everything delivered to me (take note, there are some great shots for presentations if you are building something about the Project Blackbox Tour).
We return to Canada next week, to Vancouver specifically. The plan is to be open for tours on November 20th. An interesting note is Vancouver's arts community. Many popular TV shows and movies have been filmed there, not the least of which is the first 5 seasons of the X Files (did you hear the rumor that a new movie is in the works?????). Project Blackbox is an interesting solution for remote movie production...on site computer alien and gross computer effects generation). A great storage solution for all of that HD footage being captured these days as well.
