Located in Brussels, Belgium, Nemo 33 is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, with a maximum depth of 34.5 metres (113 ft). Numerous underwater windows allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. There are two large flat-bottomed areas reaching depth levels of 5m (16 ft) and 10m (32 ft), and a large circular pit plunging to a distance of 33m (108 ft). At the 10m mark are also featured several simulated underwater caves. Nemo 33 was designed by Belgian expert diver John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production complex.

Located just a few hours outside of Munich, Starkenberg’s Castle is a brewer in Austria that has been blessed with the world’s only beer swimming pools. Swimming pools filled with nearly 42,000 pints of warm beer. While it might be nice to soak your sore muscles in booze, they definitely don’t recommend that you drink the “pool water.” You can however order a drink while taking a dip. After years of an obsolete fermentation cellar, the team decided it was time to convert this cellar into a full-fledged beer spa. All in all, there are seven different 13 foot pools nestled within the walls of the 700 year old castle.

Pool Party

Pools are not exactly the most projection ready surface, and initial brainstorms produced many more challenges than this team had anticipated. In researching a solution, they had to overcome the fact that projection doesn’t work on the surface of water, it becomes distorted if you project through it, and pool parties are notorious for more standing than swimming. Most people reacted as any any normal person would, and promptly put in and order for 65,000 ping pong balls, enough to cover the entire surface of the pool. To go with their new screen, they created an application which mapped to the pool and displayed a floating river of graphics, pulled by an invisible tide. Audio reactive visuals bumped along with the various dj’s and musical acts taking place poolside. The tactile quality of swimming through ping pong balls, combined with animated colors and light created an interactive event worth telling stories about.

The ‘New’ House Pool.


Italian company Kos presented new concept of in-house pool named Faraway Pool.  Guaranteed to add a unique, inviting touch to any home, the Faraway Pool can be built in to the floor.  The pool is always in level with the floor and the water doesn’t overflow, thanks to the ground-level fissure that doubles the pool’s outline.  To top that, the Faraway Pool features underwater illumination, which will make for a truly romantic experience.  Added to its beauty is the blower placed under the steps that allows the water surface to ripple beautifully over the entire pool.  An object of great emotional impact, for infinitely pleasurable moments. Pricing is available on request from the company.

The Blue Lagoon.


From what I hear swimming is supposed to give you a healthy glow, but these swimmers weren’t quite sure what was going on when they took a late-night dip and turned a fluorescent shade of blue.  ‘It was like we were playing with radioactive paint,’ said photographer Phil Hart who snapped the bizarre sight as his friends emerged from a lake in the dark of night.  The light is created by a chemical reaction called bioluminescence, which happens when a naturally-occuring micro-organism in the water is disturbed.

It’s believed that the combination of bushfires and floods created the high levels of nutrients in the lakes for the organisms to feed.  ‘It may not happen again in my lifetime,’ said Phil. ‘I feel fortunate to have been there to see it and to have had my camera gear there to record it.’  Phil, from Melbourne, added: ‘While the luminescence was obvious to the eye, the bright blue colour is only apparent in photos.’  When the first photo that was taken appeared on screen I could hardly believe how freakish the whole thing looked.
