MiscellaneousNerd Alert: Making the Jeep Waterfall
Posted by mike on 2007/1/18 8:35:29 (1766) reads

Have you been to the North American International Auto Show or another major international auto so? If so, then you've probably noticed the cool "Jeep Waterfall" that adorns the Jeep display.

The effect is created by falling water released through a series of overhead jets at precise intervals. The results are amazing, as just about any image can be created.

Awesome waterfall is right! Its called the Graphical Waterfall and was invented in the GOOD OL' USA by a university Professor named Stephen Pevnick.
Bio: http://www.uwm.edu/People/pevnick/index1.html

He made his first Rainfall machine in 1979 with only a few valves and a circuit board. Now he can write in any language and can make waterfalls 60' high and 100 feet wide. It can also be 2 feet thick and in 3d.
Here is a 4' piller style Graphical waterfall vid;

The Graphical Waterfall has performed art in such cities as Paris, London, Hannover, Frankfurt, Berlin, Basel, Geneve, Beijing, Bangkok, Johannesburg, Washington DC and many others.

It's awesome. My friend works for the company

I've got stuff from France, China, South Africa... Lucky bugger always get to see all the new Jeep stuff before me.
