The secret of the Rain Oculus

We were at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands yesterday when we came across the Rain Oculus by environmental artist and sculptor Ned Kahn of San Francisco's Exploratorium fame.

Some people like to throw coins into the bowl for good luck, but that's just a distraction. No one there is going to tell you this, but the structure's real secret is: if you talk while bending close enough to the rim of the structure, anyone standing anywhere around the circumference of the bowl can hear you just as clearly as if you were standing next to them.

Cool huh? Try that the next time you happen to visit, and surprise the friends you're there with!
