While we don’t think swim caps are the most stylish things, they sure beat shaving your head for decreasing drag while swimming laps. Here, we learn the correct way to put on a swim cap.
Three guys in New York want to build a public pool. The +Pool would float right in the middle of the notoriously filthy East River, filtering that brown water to make it safe to swim in.
But for the fact that we were chastised at a tender age to never run around the swimming pool, we would totally be doing the sweet ass diving moves these guys are doing over here – and frequently.
Since it wouldn’t be summertime without someone shredding it on a rope swing by a body of water, check out Mike Wilson killing it on the Truckee River doing 60′ double and triple back flips.
We’re not sure who the main star is here – the 2 launchers, the girl being launched or the floating blob that acts as a watery seesaw – but somehow they come together to confirm our belief in gravity.
The Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore is now open, at a cost of US $6 billion, and features a rooftop SkyPark and 492′ infinity pool perched high (650 feet) atop the 3 hotel towers. (Thanks Corey!)
We’re pretty skeptical about walking on water, what with that whole gravity thing, but the guys here don’t seem to care; they’re inventing the next new sport and calling it liquid mountaineering.
It might look like these people are all walking in this pool with their clothes on. But it’s an illusion, created by sandwiching water between two acrylic panels, and visitors walk under the liquid ceiling.
