The glass-bottomed walkway in China that cracks under your feet
The cracking effect is actually a special feature designed to frighten visitors
#1
China has developed something of an obsession with terrifying glass-bottomed walkways. But its newest see-through bridge really takes the biscuit.

A tour guide braving the East Taiheng Glasswalk in Hubei province had the shock of his life when the glass panels beneath his feet began to crack. It was all captured in a video posted by China’s People Daily.

He need not have panicked. The cracking effect is actually a special feature designed to frighten visitors. Sensors that detect passing pedestrians, triggering the visual and sound effects.
