    Whatever will they think of next.

    I'm sure the prgramming of this shares many similarities with Laser programming.

    That is very cool

    Actually I would liken the programming to an inkjet printer (with a very big print head)
    RTI Piko RGB 4 Projector
    CT6215 Scanners & CT 671 Amps; CT6210 & Medialas Microamps. GS124PD
    RGBLaser Systems 6000mW RGB Module - 638nm/445nm/532
    LD2000 Pro + QM2000.net + Beyond
    Etherdream + LSX

    You'd have to put it to music or else 1/2 the audience would have left for the toilet before you got 1/2 way through a performance.

    LOL That is very neat!

    I think it may just be a very complicated structure of valves. I dont know if there is a print head that could move that fast and deliver to much water in multiple posistions...

    If you look around on that website, you'll find a few more interesting setups

    Showing my age now - but. In about 1970, went to an exhibition at the ICA in London called Cybernetic Serendipity. Basically interaction between technology and the viewer. One item was a tunnel with several hundred small circuit boards with a photo sensor and and light source - a shadow image would be created of anything that walked past - not quite the "wooden mirror" but we are talking almost 40 years ago. Another exhibit I clearly remember was a large model of an ear, mounted on a long "stalk" which was hydraulically controlled (water) so it could move in any direction it could pick up sound from. A small girl, barely taller than the plinth it was was mounted on was laughing as this thing frantically tried to locate the sound, leaking water copiously from its many small actuators.
    No software control there!
