Tim BayerBRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—2/1/2016—In the video here, the apparatus in use looks like it might be some sort of zero-gravity tube. Actually, it’s a vertical wind tunnel that can be used for indoor skydiving. At the Wind Games (yes there is a competition called the Wind Games) this wind tunnel is used for 3D dancing. I was especially impressed by the skill of the 2016 champion, Leo Volkov.

Click the link below to watch a video of Earth-based wind-dancing. Or, if you have time for more than one video, you can visit my previous post, “A New Planet! Really?” and learn a bit more about our solar system.

(If you, yourselves, come across an entertaining link or video, I’d be interested in seeing it, and sharing it with my readers at Weekly Hubris. Please contact me at: Email: tim@demogrid.com.)

About Tim Bayer

Tim Bayer, Webmaster, and Assistant Editor of Weekly Hubris, was born and brought up in Webster, New York. He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design (TBayer.com) and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for Demogrid.com. He says he “tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer)

    The video introduced wind dancing to me. I’d never heard of it before and I thank you because it truly defines the word “amazing”.

    Hi Bill,

    Before I found the video, I had not been aware of it either.

    The aerobatics synchronized to music reminded me of a previous post of mine,
    An Astonishing Thing …, which captured my attention in the same way when I saw it.

    Tim
