Glass-bottom swimming pool 150m high!

You can now swim in a glass-bottomed pool while looking down at the busy road 150 metres below.

Yep, this is an swimming pool is not for those scared of heights!

Dubbed the ‘Sky Pool’, the infinity pool sits on the 42nd floor of the Market Square Tower and extends 3 metres over the side of the building in Houston, Texas.

If you fancy a dip in the Sky Pool, it’ll set you back a cool US$1805 (NZ$2660) a week to rent a studio apartment in the building.
