What is Punching Bag Fountain?

Punching Bag Fountain is a large interactive music fountain that can be operated by multiple people. It consists of punching bags, fountains, and audio equipment. Its principle: The punching bags are connected to the fountains. When the punching bags are under pressure, the pressure value will affect the water pressure of the fountain. Different water pressures will affect the height of the water column emitted by the fountain. Below the fountain are floor tiles, each of which represents a different sound. When the water jets hit the ground at different speeds and strengths,water drops make different sounds at different locations. The strength of the water drops will affect volume.


How to use it?

Put some punching bags next to the fountain. Each punching bag is connected to a fountain outlet. People can hit these punching bags at the same time. With hitting punching bags, different fountain outlets will spray water columns of different heights. When the water drops on the ground, it will make sounds and form music.
