Yes, we’ve all seen monstrous displays. Just look at the enormous TV Jerry Jones hung in the new Cowboys Stadium for crying out loud.
What we haven’t seen until now, however, is a ROOM made of displays. On Friday this “5D” cube, presumably in an effort to compete with the royal wedding that people seem preoccupied with (hint: pay attention to your own marriage, bub), will open at Huis Ten Bosch, a “residential-style resort built after a medieval 17th-century Dutch town” located in Sasebo City, Japan. Come on, you knew it was going to be Japanese.
The unique attraction accommodates 32 guests at a time, and consists of one main front screen, surrounded by additional panels on the top, bottom, left and right. Lasting eight minutes, the tour presents the story of a mermaid named Sirena, though content will occasionally change — given the transient nature of mermaids, of course. We’ve only been able to dream of the modern-day curiosities we’d encounter while visiting 17th-century Holland, but we certainly hope this magical place won’t elude us the next time we’re near Nagasaki.
