Now this is what I call moonwalking (walking on the actual moon can be called moonwalking too). A guy strings a tight rope across two rocks and then walks on it while a giant full moon acts as his background. It looks like he can touch the Moon. So cool.
Because usual tightrope walking is apparently not daring enough, a group of extreme sports enthusiasts took to the skies to attempt to walk a line from one hot air balloon to another. And they brought cameras to film their own terrific falls.
Leave it to our friends at Devin Super Tramp to make walking on a tight rope over a canyon look like such a freaking party. To be completely accurate, the people on the rope are actually 'highlining' which is like tight roping without the pole. I'd probably pee my pants just from setting one toe on the line. Points…
It might sound terribly morbid, but part of the fascination of watching a human perform a dangerous tightrope walk is the risk that they could potentially fall. So when you've got a robot risking its life, the stunt is considerably less exciting.
Tightrope walking - or tightrope motocross riding, as rather awesomely seen here - may seem like an impossibly complex skill of athletic ability and audacity. But a new mathematical model reveals one trick to mastering this seemingly arcane art.
