The somen slide from Bandai.
Interesting part is that it is based on a real way of eating somen. It involves a party, flowing water, and someone feeding the somen in at one end and collecting it at the other to feed it in again. The challenge is to catch is as it goes shooting by in the noodle flume.

Mostly because they are the flaming, spinning logos of the architecture world. Look great, but inefficient and not really designed for actual use.
