Little Kitten – The Waterfall Swing

Study break – see you in about a week’s time.

The Waterfall Swing is a collaborative installation between Mike O’Toole, Andrew Ratcliff, Ian Charnas and Andrew Witte. It’s is an intelligent swingset made from mechanical waterjets (solenoids) that create a falling plane of water in the path of the swinger; just as the rider reaches the rainfall the water parts briefly. The swing was unveiled at the 2011 World Maker Faire.

    That defeats the purpose of having a waterfall built into the swings in the first place.
