Electrosonic Recreates Gold Rush History

Electrosonic helped the National Park Service and Hadley Exhibits bring the Gold Rush to life at the new Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Site in Seattle, WA’s Pioneer Square Historic District.

Scattered through the landmark two-story structure are ten dual Stampeder Stations supplied and programmed by Electrosonic. These interactive kiosks with LCD touch-screens profile five gold seekers, including John Nordstrom, founder of Nordstrom’s department stores, still in business today. The National Park Service furnished images and graphics to Electrosonic, which teamed with Stan Johnson of Pixel Factory in Orlando, FL to create the interactive content.

A PC with custom application interface and two LCD displays for the “Your Weight In Gold” interactive exhibit was also installed by Electrosonic. Featuring a large industrial scale that weighs visitors and converts their weight to troy ounces of gold with values given for both today and during the Klondike Gold Rush, the exhibit was a last-minute addition. Electrosonic’s Mark Hogan wrote the custom software.

Electrosonic’s Thursby Pierce served as project manager for the job with Paul Kent heading sales, Guy Fronte working as site supervisor, and Niel Overton as design engineer.
