IIT Mandi startup to build world’s first giant swing in Manali

The startup called ‘ManaliSwing’, has completed its human jump trials and is in process of filing five patents for the concept and design.

This January, tourists in Manali will enjoy a giant swing backed by artificial intelligence, built by a startup incubated at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mandi. The swing is claimed to be the first of its kind in the world.

Founded by four childhood adventure enthusiast friends who are engineers, certified rock climbers, and mountaineers, the startup ‘ManaliSwing’ has completed its human jump trials. It is filing five patents for the concept and design.

The team claims it has already been approached by the Dubai government to launch the swing in the country and is in conversation with interested agencies in Switzerland too.

The concept will offer one of the world’s most creative and safe giant swings like bungy jumping, but instead of going down on a rubber bungee cord, it will be one freefall followed by a giant swing. It will use dual dynamic ropes with over 100 possible jump styles allowing one to experience the adrenaline of 70m free fall with AI promising impeccable safety like never before.

The tourists will have to pay Rs 3,000 for each jump. The cost will include transportation from a certain point and professional photography and videography service. The startup conducted a full-scale trial of 1,000 dummy jumps followed by successful Human Jumps under the special presence of IRATA experts at IIT Hyderabad.

The AI will also help track participants’ and jump master’s performance across millions of data points and deliver optimized approvals for jumping. Having a brilliant AI will be an edge for a Jump Master and his team making sure no injury, incident, or causality can happen on the site.
