This is a boat lift.
Designed by Scottish architecture firm, RMJM, the Falkirk Wheel is boat lift in central Scotland that connects two canals. Previously 11 locks were required to connect the canals which differ in height by 24 meters. The inner rings rotate at the same speed as the larger axis in order to keep the boat and water from tipping over. The Wheel can make a full rotation in eight minutes.
Whoa. Cool use of a .gif for a non-humorous purpose.
WHAT. WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT. THE WORLD IS OVER. I AM DEAD.
