Swinging in the Rain

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here at MAKE HQ in Sebastopol, Calif. we’re enjoying a great run of Indian Summer weather, deep blue skies, temps in the low 80s and a tinge of fall crispness when you step into the shade. A perfect day for a swing in a park or playing in the water. Or both.

Perhaps that was the inspiration for Andrew Ratcliff and Michael O’Toole’s “Water Swing.” The swing was a hit at Maker Faire New York in 2011 and lately the lazy, but mesmerizing video of the swing in action has been making the rounds on the web as the warm weather nears its end. Here’s to warm weather and swinging the days away.
