“Towering steel swing set holding arrays of mechanical solenoids that create a water plane falling in the path of its riders. Formed from a tangent of ideas raised from the study of interactions of water as space, the swing is the first in a series that play with interaction in rides and installations. Riders pass through openings in a waterfall created by precisely monitoring their path via axel-housed encoders, creating the thrill of narrowly escaping obstacles.
The swing is a collaborative project between Mike O’Toole, Andrew Ratcliff, Ian Charnas and Andrew Witte.”

Zoetrope Animation Set by ~smakeupfx
There’s something beautiful and exciting about this. — whisperinglion
"As the discs spin the figures around the edges, hanging from the bottoms and suspended on rods line up so everything animates just like an actual Zoetrope. The camera flies around showing closeups and following a pseudo- storyline thanks to motion control (since we have multiple discs that have to be switched out to extend the movements past the 18 frames each disc is set up for. I wait with baited breath to see the finished footage." — smakeupfx

Built by a company called Boston Dynamics, who according to their website has also built robots capable of scaling walls and running fast. Really cool stuff.
