Inventor Builds 360-Degree Swing in His Backyard

Michele Debczak

YouTuber Colin Furze has made a name for himself with his crazy contraptions. In April, the UK-based internet star unveiled his fully functional hover bike to the world, and now he’s making childhood dreams come true again with his 360-degree backyard swing.

In the video above, Furze successfully swings himself all the way around, reaching 31 feet at his highest point. With no straps or harnesses securing him, the only thing that keeps him from flinging into the neighbor’s yard is a strong grip. To see how he built it, you can check out his behind-the-scenes video here.
