Rolling Bridge

The creative brain continually amazes me. This Rolling Bridge that sits over London's Grand Union Canal is a perfect example. This amazing idea just blows me away. The UK based Heatherwick Studio created this bridge which is run off of a hydraulic system in the handrail and retracts into an octagon to allow boats to move through the canal. For more info see here and here.
