Random International's Rain Room at MoMA

Have you been to see the Museum of Modern Art's latest installation, Rain Room, yet? If not, take the time to visit: The piece, created by Random International, lets visitors actually walk between raindrops without getting wet. Sensors detect where people are within the room, and the water stops in the areas where folks are standing. The effect is pretty cool—check out the video below to see how it works.


The piece is part of the "EXPO 1: New York" exhibit coordinated by MoMA PS1, but takes place at the museum's midtown building. Not surprisingly, you'll have to wait to get into the installation, but you can keep tabs on how long the queue is by checking MoMA's Twitter feed.
