Theme Park Exhibit:
A company specializing in 3-D designs for museums, theme parks, and other attractions needed to build an “icy throne” for a museum exhibit and keep it dry at the same time.
Using four TECA AHP-1200CP Peltier cold plates (thermoelectric cold plates), one was placed in the seat, back, and in each arm rest of the throne. Raw aluminum was then screwed onto the plates, and the throne surfaces reached close to -20 °C! Visitors to the museum can sit on the throne to feel the chill. The “ice” in the picture is not real. It is a “hard coat” of scenic ice. The throne manufacturers did not want museum visitors to get wet from real ice; their goal was to create a throne.
