Leave it to the geniuses at MIT to come up with this one: A building made with digital walls of water. From the MIT release:
MIT architects and engineers have designed such a building, and it will be unveiled at next year's international exhibition in Spain. The "digital water pavilion" - an interactive structure made of digitally controlled water curtains - will be located at the entrance to Expo Zaragoza 2008, in front of a new bridge designed by Zaha Hadid. The structure will contain an exhibition area, a cafe and various public spaces.

I have conference envy! I'm sure there will be many wonders to behold on the tradeshow floor at ASAE and the Center's annual meeting next month, but somehow, I doubt we'll see anything quite this cool. Have to wait for the technology to trickle down (heh heh) to meeting
suppliers, I guess.
