Writing with water

Earlier this summer, I came across a mechanical device that uses wave interference to form letters on the surface of a pool of water (check out the blog post and cool photo). Today I learned about another great device for writing with water.

By precisely turning on and off streams of falling water, the device creates the effect of sheets of falling letters. Look at the video on this page to see what it in action. I'm amazed by the detail...it's not just rough block letters, you can even be sleective about fonts! Amazing.
