See inventor soar to mad new heights in his 360-degree swing

Colin Furze, creator of a hoverbike and other wild inventions, just built a huge, one-of-a-kind swing in his yard.

How many kids once thought that if they just pumped their legs a little harder, they might soar all the way around the swing set? British inventor Colin Furze just made those kids' dreams come true.

Furze built a contraption in his yard that swings 360 degrees. In a nerve-wracking video posted to YouTube Thursday, he flies through the air without any safety equipment after announcing to the camera, "I get motion sickness, I don't particularly like heights and I don't like going upside down."

We can only guess what he thought halfway through the ride, more than 31 feet (9.5 meters) in the air. Upside down.

This is far from the mad scientist's first stunt. He developed a hoverbike in April and two Assassin's Creed-inspired gauntlets complete with a hidden blade and rope launcher.

Furze's popular YouTube channel is kind of like "MythBusters," but instead of the lovable dummy, Buster, Furze suits up (literally, as in he wears a tie and collared shirt) and does the stunts himself.

Needless to say, don't try to replicate this latest Furze trick in your own backyard.
