The shallow basin of the fountain is a key architectural feature of the Berlin Sony Center. In addition to existing unobtrusive water features, an additional attraction is to wow visitors and tie them to the location.

Sony’s Aibo robotic pets form the key element of a fun scenario. The attraction is based on an idea for a special clock that features an Aibo robot show as an hourly highlight.
