The Hyper Fountain is a VR installation that invites users to playfully experience the element of water. In the sense of an experimental study, it explores the question of whether a virtual experience evokes the same reaction as the actual physical experience. Visitors hold their hands under a thin jet of water while being shown various materials through the VR glasses, including money, magma particles and pills that are flowing like water. As a result, the perception was reconditioned and users even felt impressions when there was no water at all.
