Rain Oculus - Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

This is the Rain Oculus inside Marina Bay Sands hotel & casino in Singapore. Periodically a torrent of water (6,000 gallons per minute) is released from the clear inverted dome 2 stories above which has an off-center hole which causes a huge swirling effect as the water drains out the bottom. This creates a huge waterfall from below. Basically it's like being underneath a clear, clean toilet bowl. In this photo you can see people enjoying Sampan Rides in Chinese wooden boats along the canals of the Marina Bay Sands around the Rain Oculus. Another interesting fact is that when you're above at the edge of the dome, it acts like an audio parabolic reflector so you can hear people whispering on the other side.
