Irvine Spectrum Giant Wheel

Irvine, California

More than 130 retail stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues come together to create one of Orange County’s most energized retail experiences – Irvine Spectrum Center. Serving as the center’s icon is the giant ferris wheel. RGB Lights was able to take this attraction which already stood out and transform it into something that cannot be missed. We achieved this through an integrated design of FlexiFlex and FlexiFleXL. More than 52,000 energy-efficient LED lights now adorn the wheel and are capable of producing 16 million different color schemes! This project provided us with the opportunity to implement techniques such as wireless control aspects for the gondolas and rotation sensor integration to allow the wheel to spin while images stay justified. Invented and manufactured by RGB Lights, the power/data supply sPDS-480x was able to make its debut on this project, reducing the outdoor networking component by 80%. This landmark can now be utilized for advertising opportunities, holiday decor, and event themes. The options are limitless for what this wheel will look like next!
