Rain Room: Control the Weather

1894189o

Finally, there is a way to control the weather. Well, at least in the Rain Room in The Curve gallery at the Barbican Centre in London. The Rain Room is a 100 square metre field of falling water which visitors are invited to walk into. Sensors detect where visitors are standing, and the rain stops around them, giving them an experience of how it might feel to control the rain. By the way, there is something very similar in Budapest, Hungary: a fountain working in a similar way that kids love to play with.
