      I would enjoy that immensly. If the stairs were on springs, I would spend ages just mucking about on them even though I'm a middleaged woman with creaky knees.

      Or if you replaced the stairs with the stripy soft pyramid from Gladiators.... Just a thought!

      Brilliant and inspired :lol:
      all stairs should be made fun, not just like this but other things too.
      sorry to hyjack your thread but maybe we could all come up with other ideas.

      Mine would be have a button on each end which you press and it shows various coloured lights (each step would be split into 3 sections) and you have to memorise and follow the light pattern on the way up or down. Like a large version of simon says.

      I have spent longer in a supermarket than I intended because I was using a shopping trolley with a wonky wheel and ended up having several conversations with people that I have never met before. Maybe one or two of the trolleys should be designed to make funny noises or move in a quirky way.

      I quite like the idea of designing a supermarket trolley that's intentionally uncontrollable :D Perhaps an electronic brake on one of the wheels that randomly engages. That would certainly spice things up!

      There's some more interesting ideas here: http://www.thefuntheory.com/, although I do think the piano staircase is the best

      This is a brilliant idea, I cant imagine how these guys thinking of it! And people really love music though. Can call this "Cost efficient effort".
