    Link: The Waterfall Swing At The World Maker Faire - This baby is at the New York Hall of Science and allows its riders to pass through water without getting wet.

    Cool, but they are not passing through water. They are basically going around it. It`s shutting off and restarting. That`s like saying people are passing through glass when a window is opening and closing.

    I like it when the water gets pixely.

    Pretty simple technology, but nifty nonetheless. Looks a bit rickety from a practical standpoint though. :\

    I think it`d be more fun to pass through the water.

    @piperfawn, I think the water is pumped from the bassin to the swing, so it`s re-used. That`s hardly wasting water. You must be against fountains and swimming pools too...

    interesting....but what`s the point of that? If I want to play in a waterfall I`ll go play in a waterfall, and if I don`t want to get wet then I`ll stay away from a freaking swingset that spews water.
