Finally, A Display That Stimulates 32 People at Once!


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.
