A glass "sky pool" is planned to be suspended between apartment blocks in London's new Nine Elms quarter. The 25-metre-long pool will link two blocks of apartments that form part of the 2,000-home Embassy Gardens development.

At five metres wide and three metres deep, the pool will allow residents to swim between the two buildings while enjoying views of London through the pool's completely transparent 20-centimetre glass casing.

This looks pretty awesome. Would you be willing to swim here? Let's just hope there isn't a leak.
