Watching a Slinky Fall Down Stairs Forever Is as Delightful as You'd Expect

New, 3 comments

As mesmerizing as it is to watch this custom-built perpetual slinky escalator in action, the fact that we get to watch the machine's architect go through all the trials and tribulations of building it first makes it at least a hundred times more satisfying. Plus, now we can all build our own perpetual slinky elevators for our own apartments. All we need is a professional woodworking studios, probably a couple decades of experience, and the patience of a literal saint.
