I don't think I've ever seen something like the Philly Fountain. Of course, that's not surprising since it's still just a concept conceived for the city of Philadelphia.

Designed by Justin Johnsen, the Philly Fountain features a solar-powered touchscreen that encourages social interaction. Basically, you can draw on it then passersby can elaborate on your artwork. The Philly Fountain also glows to indicate its presence at night. Stats for Graffiti Drinking Fountains Trending: Older & Average
