A Raining Room You Can Walk Through And Not Get Wet

October 5, 2012


This is a video of Barbican's Rain Room. It's a room full of simulated rain that you can walk through and not get wet. Sorcery? Sadly, no. It uses 3-D cameras to track your movement and open a small pocket of dryness around you as you walk through it. Of course, it would be just my luck that the cameras would malfunction when I visited and I'd wind up soaked. It's cool though, I like the rain. Unless it's raining men. "Then you love it." Then I loooove it. <3

Hit the jump for a video demo.

Thanks to Nathan, who makes it rain the old fashioned way: with a handful of singles a magical Native American dance.
