A network of three giant trampolines has been built in a quarry cave in the Welsh town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. You have to wear white overalls and helmets in it, so we're stupidly close to getting the world's largest game of Kosho going here.

I mean, could these trampolines really be conserving so much energy as to allow Christophe Hamel (he's the one soaring all over the place) to return to what appears to be the same altitude after basically…
