Ooh, my favorite!


Waterfall Swing

This wonderfully awesome contraption was featured last year at the World Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science. Just watching this makes me giddy. I’d probably pass out from sheer delight if I ever have the chance to take this for a ride.

“Riders pass through openings in a waterfall created by precisely monitoring their path via axel-housed encoders, creating the thrill of narrowly escaping obstacles.”

So true! The sensations of the water, even just seeing and smelling it, would add such an exciting dimension to my already favorite playground staple. I am just so happy this exists somewhere. Sigh.

I love it! My coworker went to the Maker Fair here in Seattle, but I don’t think he saw this contraption. There WAS a Tesla Gun, though.

A Tesla Gun?! I would die. How did I miss that?
