‘Bottomless’ pool, suspended 500ft in air, may induce strokes (VIDEO)

A luxury apartment building in Texas has a 40-story high, glass-bottomed, ‘sky pool’ that will make your knees weak.

The Market Square Tower in Houston, Texas, is a new residential building that promises to “celebrate, honor and nourish” your lifestyle with a range of extravagant amenities.

Along with your usual gym, spa and games room, tenants of the five-star tower can utilize a virtual golf and billiards room, poker suite, basketball court, movie theater, cyber lounge, sunless tanning suite, temperature-controlled wine room and, of course, a see-through “sky pool” that extends 10-feet (3 meters) beyond the building’s edge, giving you a bird's-eye view of the city 500 feet below.

There's a pool in the sky.
