Given the choice, would you rather walk on stairs or take the escalator instead? For most, they would often go with the latter—that is, to save time and of course, energy. But if there were stairs like these everywhere? I’d gladly skip taking the escalators or even the elevators!
They have this tagline, “This site is dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.”
Actually, this was an experiment done by a team in Odenplan, Stockholm—they wanted to test if this unique staircase would encourage passerby’s to use the stairs more than the escalator.
Totally cool! In a world where the attention span of people is piqued by innovative ideas like these, we ought to have more innovations like this. 🙂
