SING IN THE RAIN ROOM
Skip through a rain storm without getting wet at the MoMA’s “Rain Room,” which opened this past Sunday. Leave the umbrellas and raincoats home because the water stops falling in areas where people are detected. While meteorologists can’t quite control the weather yet, this interactive exhibit explores the ways science, technology, and ingenuity can help stabilize the environment. However, in order for the technology to work best, the MoMA discourages wearing super-thin stilettos, reflective gear, or rain slickers, and like all computerized systems, there is always the potential for a rogue raindrop.
