YouTube Inventor & Legend Colin Furze Adds Propeller to 360-Swing!

There are some people in this world who are just not content with “normal” things, and thankfully for all of us, British inventor Colin Furze is one of those people. Having created many completely bonkers items on his YouTube channel, such as Wolverine retractable claws, magnetic boots, rocket powered go-carts, even a fallout bunker, to name but a few of his extensive collection, his latest is one of the maddest yet.

Riding on the swings can be fun, maybe even trying to make it go over the top of the bars to show off to your friends. Of course, if you really want to go over the bar, you need more than a little push, which is why Colin fitted a gas-powered propeller and throttle to a custom made rigid 360-degree swing. First, you build up a little steam, then you blast the throttle and take a spin right over the top.

We thought this looked like fun, extremely dangerous, but fun. That was at least until we saw how rough Colin looked after whipping himself around a few times, so maybe you should only go on this if you’ve got a strong stomach.

Imagine having Colin living next door to you; awesome or nightmare?

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
