An architectural design firm Salto has developed the ”Fast track“ trampoline, installed in a Russian forest. The 51 Meter long (170 foot) trampoline is a part of the Archstoyanie festival in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia.
‘Fast Track’ is designed for parks, not only to be a feature, but an integral part of the area’s foundation. The constant bouncing involved with a trampoline surface surely makes walking a lot more exciting.
The company built the trampoline path, which stretched across a field for the Russian festival, held earlier this year.
A perfectly timed swing that lets you swing through a waterfall without getting wet. Each swing seat is controlled by a computer that stops the flow of water at the exact moment for the rider to pass under completely dry.
Water recirculates through 273 independently controlled solenoid valves at the top of the structure to create a wall of water. This water starts from a collection pool on the ground and is pumped up to a large pipe that feeds the solenoids. Sensors mounted on the swing set gather information about the angle and speed of each swing. That information is sent to a computer that predicts the action of the rider. The computer then creates a hole in the wall of water, allowing the rider to swing through without getting wet.
The Skycycle is a unique pedal powered roller coaster at Washuzan Highland Park in Okayama, Japan. The foot powered roller-coaster ride have seat belts, and a basket (just in case you feel sick). If you are not physically fit, you’ll have problems pedaling your way through the ride. But look on the bright side, you’ll get to burns more calories. So who’s up for a ride?
