DESCRIPTION

The Resort World at Sentosa will feature the Crane Ballet, a
showcase of multi-media moving art using cleverly
choreographed animatronic cranes and pyrotechnics.

Structures Workshop was consulted by McLaren to help
verify the truss, connection, and fatigue calculations for this
mechanical sculpture that can rise 100 ft and rotate
continuously and bend up to 130 degrees.

"Love Takes Flight at the WaterfrontWatch the magical love
story between a pair of mechanical cranes and how their
love for each other transforms them into real birds.  
Combining groundbreaking audio and visual technologies,
astounding light and water effects, be awed by the cranes'
graceful courtship ritual. The sheer size of the steel cranes
moving deftly in the midst of water illusion and play of light
is one not to be missed." (
