What you are seeing here is one of those infinity pools.
What is an infinity pool? An infinity pool has an effect that the water of the pool can extend to the horizon. In reality, this water spills over the edge into a catchment, and then is pumped back to the pool again.
This particular one is located on the top of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. I don’t know if you can tell, but it is huge. There is a video after the jump so you can get an idea of how big. My Source has said that this pool is bigger in length than the Eiffel Tower laid down.
I don’t know about you, but I would be a little scared to swim in this pool. I mean, it looks like the water just ends at the roof! I mean, you would be swimming, and then “Ahhhh”!
There has got to be some sort of transparent screen or shield to protect the swimmers from that, right? Now I know how it felt back in the days of Columbus when they thought you could literally sail off the end of the earth.
I don’t think I’ll be swimming in this pool (or something like it) anytime soon, but I would sure like to.
