Break Time: Raindrops, Indoor Clouds & Man-Made Waves

My fingers are crossed for a sunny—or at least dry—weekend to take advantage of everything and anything summer-related. So, with the forecast on my mind, I found these cool articles about humans manipulating weather and water.

The Museum of Modern Art has an amazing exhibit right now called Rain Room. The innovative idea allows people to walk through a man-made downpour without getting wet. Incredible!

Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde has brought clouds indoors. Using a smoke machine, he carefully releases vapor creating a bright, fluffy cloud in the middle of a beaux-arts designed room. The result is a mesmerizing juxtaposition of nature and man.

I have always wanted to surf, but the prospect of deep water, sharp coral, and great whites have kept me on the sand. An inventive entrepreneur might change that. He created a pool capable of producing 120 surfable waves per hour. It’s even built to be environmentally friendly!
