We were commissioned by one of the UAE's leading providers of festival entertainment, Saltimbanco Italiano Global Art Theatre Company, to create a vehicle for the Dubai Summer Surprises’ icon, Modhesh. It was used to transport the character around during his appearances at malls and events across the city, together with a team of entertainers, jugglers, stilt-walkers and acrobats, to promote the Dubai Summer Surprises Festival.
The requirements called for a powerful sound system, so Invent created the design built on an electrically-operated golf cart, significantly modified and fitted with a tough fibreglass body, with sufficient DC power to allow for a 1000W automotive sound system.
The final design provided a suitably large platform for the Modhesh character to stand on, with a fold-down step, a strong, grab handle-bar and special-effect lighting. Wherever Modhesh appeared, the car always created a stir!
