Ping Pong Trampolines

Ping Pong Trampolines consist of a pair of trampolines attached to a set of rails so that the distance between them can be gradually increased or decreased. The two trampolines are inclined towards each other at an adjustable angle.

Using the Ping Pong Trampolines involves bouncing from one platform to the other in a gradually increasing arc. Small motorised servos automatically adjust the respective angles after each bounce along with the space between the two trampolines to maximise the amount of height gained by the participant.

To add to the effect, each trampoline emits a loud ping or pong sound on completion of each springing impact.

       This is all very well and good until one wants to stop pinging and ponging.

       A moat and alligators might add something.

       If you're totally bonkers you can position each of the ping pong trampolines on two adjacent tall buildings.

       // adjacent //   

       Would you oblige us by maybe putting some numbers on that ?   

       Are the buildings to be of similar heights ? Will wind speed and direction be a consideration ?

       Trivial details are left to the minions.
