The Vdara Death Ray
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: vdara citycenter murren comments: 8
Interesting story in the Review Journal about how the curvature of Vdara is causing a high intensity beam of heat/light to cook a 15x15 square of the pool deck everyday, including one guys drink cup, plastic bag, flip flops and singe his hair.
Called it "The Vdara Death Ray" they do. Notable MGM PR wonk Gordon Absher says that they put a protective coating on the windows to cut down the reflection by 70%. Didn't work.
Perhaps the most interesting thing is that we predicted this would happen in a post dated October 7th, 2008 - two years ago, and one year before Vdara even opened. Read the last four paragraphs... I dare you.
