The Cloud Cast comprises a ceiling-mounted canopy of thin aluminium jets, each one equipped with an ultrasonic sensor for detecting motion à la whale-to-whale communication. An ultrasound signal is sent and if an echo is received in a given window of time, the object is deemed sufficiently near and hydro-valves in the spray jet activate to lightly mist the passerby. The sensors track your movement and direct the spray accordingly as you move, so that the whole system need not be triggered at once
