Osaka, Japan, now has the largest shopping mall in the country and it features this pretty amazing fountain that displays the time as well as artworks using illuminated water droplets. Created by Koei Industry, it works much like a dot matrix printer, recreating images from a PC that it's linked up to. Pretty stunning results! (Thanks for the find Maz). You may have seen the ...
