A seven by seven grid of sophisticated sequencing jets serve to represent the seven regions that make up the United Arab Emirates.

Listen to Creative Director, and feature designer Rob Miklua has to say about the Emirates Interactive feature.

The grid of 49 individually addressed sequencing jets allow for a variety of choreographed programs based on the level that any group achieves in a cooperation game. The jets are activated via 49 foot activation pads that frame the interactive deck. Each foot pad includes a concealed weight sensor that transmits data to activate various sequence logic patterns. Water and light expressions will be activated as variations of sine waves like a “magic carpet”, depending on which foot pads are activated.

  • Water Feature Layout: Each feature includes a 7m x 7m interactive deck complete with 600mm x 600mm square paver units throughout. Forty-nine sensor pads (with concealed load sensors) are positioned around the perimeter of each interactive pad.
