Video: Modern materials engineering allows us to build what looks like precarious glass skywalks perched hundreds of metres off the ground. They're completely safe, but knowing that doesn't make them any less terrifying to traverse -- especially when the glass skywalk you're on uses transparent LCD screens to make it look like it's about to shatter and collapse.
