coolest swing ever

Yup, doesn't get much cooler than the Waterfall Swing, a collaborative project between Mike O’Toole, Andrew Ratcliff, Ian Charnas and Andrew Witte.

The huge steel swing set holds an array of mechanical solenoids that create a water plane falling in the path of its riders. Formed from ideas raised from the study of interactions of water as space, the swing is the first in a series that play with interaction in rides and installations. Riders pass through holes in a waterfall created by precisely monitoring their path via axel-housed encoders, creating the thrill of narrowly escaping wetness.

But wait, there's more. Check out this video of the Waterfall swing writing.
