Waterfall Swing is the Object of Your Childhood Fantasies

When I was a kid, I always found waterfalls mesmerizing. There’s just something about the massiveness of the whole thing that my kid brain just couldn’t fully process. Mesh that concept with a swing set and you’ve got yourself the object of many people’s childhood fantasies.

Waterfall SwingThe Waterfall Swing is a collaborative installation by Mike O’Toole, Andrew Ratcliff, Ian Charnas and Andrew Witte. Its primary component are mechanical waterjets and solenoids that showered a plane of falling droplets towards the path of the one who’s on the swing.

The cool thing is that the curtain of water parts in the middle whenever the person on the swing, well, swings past it.

The swing debuted at the 2011 World Maker Faire. If you think you’ve got what it takes, you can learn how to build your own Waterfall Swing by checking out this link.
