This Spacecraft-Looking Thing Is the 'World's First Vertical Cable Car'

New, 4 comments

Though it most closely resembles a flying saucer kebab or a successful game of giant ring toss, this structure is actually soon to be the world's first vertical cable car, also known as the United Kingdom's highest observation tower outside of London. Designed by Marks Barfield Architects, the same people behind the London Eye, the British Airways i360 will abduct transport passengers 138 meters (453 feet) into the sky by sucking them up with a huge laser beam having them pay money and then walk inside. They will then be probed awarded with nice views of a river.
