Looks Like An Ordinary Swing Set, Right? Nope… Look Again. This Is Brilliant!

Here’s a cool swing perfect for hot summer days. The Waterfall Swing is an art installation designed by the team at Dash 7 Design.

This special swing was made so that water recirculates through controlled solenoid valves at the top of the swing which creates a wall of water. This water starts from a collection pool on the ground and is pumped through a pipe that feeds the solenoids. Rotational encoders mounted on the swings gather information about the speed and angle of the swing. The information is sent to a computer that predicts the action of the rider.

Riders swing through without getting wet.

The swing can also make designs in the water.

Wouldn’t this be awesome to have in your backyard? Here are the specifications to build your own waterfall swing.
