glass bottomed swimming poolA swimming pool at a Texas apartment block has a glass bottom, allowing people to see through it to the ground 500ft beneath them.

 

Crafted in eight-inch thick Plexiglass, the “sky pool” at Market Square Tower in Houston extends an eye-watering 10ft out over the side of the building.

 

Called The Sky Pool, it’s on the 42nd floor of the block and offers a bird’s eye view of the city.

 

It’s an infinity pool which stretches 10ft beyond the side of the building, which is when people get the sensation they’re walking on air.

 

A video has been release by a guest which shows cars zooming along the road 40 stories below.

 

Reaction to the video has been mixed online, with many desperate to give walking on the glass a go.

 

The complex has plenty of apartments on the block to be sold. Prices range from £1,458 ($1,805) a month for a studio to £15,125 ($18,715) for one of the penthouses.
