His contraption has a towering blue metal frame covered in lights that supports a 31-foot-long arm with a hub and axle system. One end of the steel arm has slots for his feet and handlebars for grip.

"I can go alllllllll the way over," he exclaimed, while holding the swing tight and pinching his knees together. "Ahhhhh! Yeahhhhhhh!" An earlier version was taller and had a longer arm, only while Furze was swinging on it he noticed metal bending at the fulcrum. Gulp.
Given an opportunity to take this for a spin myself, I'm not sure I'd say yes. My hands got sweaty just watching Furze go in a dizzying loop, his tie flapping wildly. And that's before he showed a clip of the buckling metal on his earlier version. At the end of his video demo, he mentions adding propulsion. I hope he was joking.

The Mail Online reported that Furze was doing all of this to impress his three-year-old son, Jake. You might remember that before Jake was born, Furze threw himself into making a stroller equipped with a motorcycle engine. When the kid is a bit older, all this school mates are definitely going to want to hang out at his house.
