Description

A tag sewn into the upholstery gives instructions for operation. The cycle begins when a hand is inserted into the glove and the participant locates the on switch. Water pumps from a tank below and pressurizes an inner tube which surrounds the arm; thus holding the hand in place while high pressure water jets spray towards the glove from all angles. When the water is used up, the tank is empty and the pump turns off, releasing the arm of the participant. watch the video
