Chaotic Swing

Pivot point is hung from springs.

See the link. You'd be sitting on the bottom blue ball. You'd both swing and push yourself up when you were close to the ground.

       Congratulations. (+)   

       You sir have, after several generations of innovative stagnancy, have reinvented and made the Jolly-Jumper cool again.   

       <begins slow clap>   

       Thanks, I couldn’t remember the name or find a picture of that thing. I kept coming back to the inverted version, the spring-mounted horsey rides at playgrounds.

       Well, the Jolly jumper is just the spring, this adds a pivot to it. The spring isn't very chaotic, there's just two paths, up and down swinging on a pivot. This adds another movement element that multiplies the various movements quite a bit. The Jolly Jumper doesn't whip you around at random like this would.   

       See the Jolly Jumper animation for comparison.   

       But I'll take the slow clap.

       Oh, hell yeah. Adding a [+] for [8th] who cannot be here.

       Ahh 8th, he would have pointed out the whiplash injuries this design would cause and thrown up an enthusiastic bun.
