    The RainRoom is an art installation that allows you to walk through a downpour and not get wet. You walk down a corridor and into a 330 square foot room that is dispensing 660 gallons of water that that falls at 264 gallons per minute. So in layman's terms, that is a whole lot of water and the magic of it all is that you won't get hit with a single drop.

    As you walk across the floor, the 3D cameras track you and maps your body, relaying the information to the software, which in turns tells the hydraulics where you are, and therefore where the water should not be. It is like you have super powers or something!!

    Agreed. I hope this was not funded with Taxpayer money.
