So, an apartment complex in Houston is home to the ‘sky-pool’, and we can’t decide if it’s amazing or completely terrifying?

The glass-bottomed pool extends 10 feet beyond the side of building and sits 500 feet above street level.

Just take a look at this video.

According to the complex’s Facebook page, "You’ll swim amongst the sky and stars in this unique, one-of a kind, ‘floating’ phenomenon." 

 We have to admit, it looks pretty cool from the angle. 


Would you swim in an infinity pool like this? Freaky!!! #downtownhouston #marketsquare #infinitypool #skyrise

The gravity-defying pool has been dividing opinions on Twitter. 

So reckon you're brave enough to take a dip?

If not, don't worry, there's another pool on the fourth-floor.   


First of all, these toys aren't really hoverboards. It doesn't hover – it acts as a sideways skateboard, with wheels, but it doesn't hover.

We just wanted something like Marty McFly had a little bit too much, and this is what they came up with instead.

But one of these popular toys turned out to be something quite scary over the week. In a shopping centre in Houston, Texas, there was stall in the middle of the centre selling a few toys, including the so-called hoverboard. 

But then one of the hoverbords exploded and caught on fire, causing the whole shopping centre to be evacuated. Some even thought the noise coming from the toy was a bomb, reports news station ABC 13. 

The fire was quickly put out by the shopping centre's security team and thankfully, no one was injured.

Let's just say we'll stick to cosy jumper for Christmas from now on.
