Origin of Cool: Japan
The city of Osaka in Japan recently opened the largest shopping mall in the country, and it features a water feature like no other.
The attraction, located in the South Gate Building of the new Osaka Station City complex, is a large rectangular water display created by local firm Koei Industry. As the video above shows, Koei’s Space Printer fountain allows the time to be shown as well as floral graphics. The printer emits illuminated water droplets in carefully controlled patterns to reproduce images that are stored on a PC.
Origin of Cool thinks this could be used as a new form of advertising. As well as telling the time, there could be shows, sports scores and even news stories added. The possibilities are endless.
What are your thoughts on the fountain? How could you see it being used?
