Researches at Akishima Laboratories in Japan have devised a way to 'draw' letters, words and simple pictures on the surface of water. The effect is created using an enclosure of 50 wave generator. The device requires sophisticated software that enables the generator to create little pixels. The effect is pretty cool. Where will we see it next?
Implications - I could see this becoming the next big thing at high-profile events, or at some of Las Vegas' most lucrative hotels. Wherever there is a need for awe-inspiring luxury and technology, you can be sure that this futuristic water sculpting methodology will show up. It truly is a brave new world we live in.
