Come Hang Out in my Sky Pool

So I don't actually have a sky pool, but if I did, it might look something like this.

According to The Age, the Parinee ISM development to be built in Mumbai (shown above) includes 64 infinity-edge pools.  With dimensions of 1.5m x 8m (and only 1m deep), they are really more like paddling pools, but still nice for lazing around in on a hot Summer's day.

I would however, have concerns about their safety (at a potential 140m high, you'd really want to have faith in the structural engineering - which someone described as 'possible in theory').  And then there's the cost - not only are these pools sky high, but so is the price thanks to the extra engineering required.  Lastly, Alan Davies recently wrote about the correlation between pools and extra energy use.

It's an interesting concept leading on from more traditional rooftop infinity pools (like the famous Marina Bay pool in Singapore), but at the end of the day, would you really want to play 'greatest catches' in this?
