You Have to See This Waterfall Swing Set to Understand How Brilliant It Actually Is

Four artists and engineers at Dash 7 Design recently got together to make the coolest swing set of all time. I could watch this looping GIF for hours:

This incredible waterfall swing set is designed to sense the angle and velocity of its riders, to never get them wet.


The attached computer uses predictive algorithms to calculate the precise timing for the water jets.


Each swing is a narrow miss!


I would love to try this waterfall swing set - better yet, to have one just like it in my backyard! The folks who designed it don’t appear to have any plans for mass consumer release, but they have posted the technical specifications on their website. I should send this to my engineering buddies to see if they can put something like this together!
