Extreme Loading Technology Used For Spyglass Resort in Criss Angel Mindfreak

, (PressExposure) August 01, 2008 -- Extreme Loading® technology makes its international television debut on the Criss Angel Mindfreak show in an episode called “Building Implosion Escape” and set to air live on A&E, July 30th at 10 PM Eastern (9:00PM Central) and rebroadcast on July 31st at 2:00AM ET (1:00 AM CT) .

In this episode Criss Angel will attempt to escape from the nine-story Spyglass Resort building in Clearwater Fl. as it is being imploded by a team from Advanced Explosives Demolition, Inc. http://www.biggerblast.com.

The event will be broadcast in North America, Latin America and Australia, and live feeds will be on http://www.aetv.com and http://www.crissangel.com along with a 9-by-12-foot screen at the site for spectators. Angel is the creator, executive producer and director of the series “Mindfreak” on A&E in addition to several television specials.

Applied Science International (ASI), http://www.appliedscienceint.com, used Extreme Loading® technology to simulate the demolition and illustrate how the building will collapse in order to help the production team understand the hazards associated with this feat.

“Our engineered simulations accurately show what the collapse will look like when we are provided with the necessary building plans and implosion sequence details. What you see in the simulation is what we feel certain will occur when they take the building down,” commented ASI CEO, Edward diGirolamo.

ASI services include assisting demolition contractors with presentations to local authorities and stakeholders for demolition plan approval. Safety concerns are allayed and permits are granted more readily when the approval authority can see what will happen before it does.

“We’ll often have local news stations air the simulations and post them on their websites prior to the event in order to meet the demands of public interest. This event will help draw attention to simulating explosive demolitions and emphasizing the value it brings” concluded diGirolamo.

ASI teamed with TSNStudios, a sister company, on the project who enhanced some of the output for the Criss Angel production team, providing yet another example of the diversity of the technology.
