London 2012 Industrial Revolution Chimneys LOCOG

Within each chimney, there was a remotely controlled unit designed to fill a ring round the top of the chimney, making it look like it was belching smoke but actually keeping the amount of smoke to a minimum.  In addition, as the chimneys were made of fabric and had to be hoisted into position (they telescoped and inflate) a safety rig was incorporated that could take the weight of the base unit when the fabric was fully paid out, and thus prevent the fabric itself from being torn apart when the aerial system in the stadium flexed.
