WATCH: Seoul creates the world’s largest 3D wave atop a downtown building

A breathtaking 3D wave is crashing inside a huge aquarium located atop a building in downtown Seoul, South Korea.

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – An outdoor advertising company called d’strict has created a public media installation that brings the power of the ocean waves into the city.

“Our goal was to create an overwhelming experience using the beauty and dynamism of waves because they evoke feelings of comfort, which is much needed now,” Jun Lee, business development director at d’strict.

To create the illusion of a massive wave splashing in the aquarium the company used over 17,000 square feet of 8k resolution screen.

The media project is 66 feet tall and 266 feet wide. For the spectacular 3D effect to come to life, Samsung had to manufacture over 31,000 video panels.

The realistic “Wave” simulation shows up one minute every hour and literally stops the traffic around the commercial square. The distorted projection creates the illusion that the water is crashing into the glass, about to break it, and ready to engulf passersby.
