When the stresses and strains of the everyday world begin to burden my mind, I search out new ways to clear my thoughts and center myself. Sometimes I immerse myself in the beautiful majesty of nature. Sometimes I listen to classical music with my eyes closed. Sometimes I watch a video of a Slinky walking down an infinite wooden escalator.
According to Eric Limer for Popular Mechanics: "As beautifully simple as a infinite wooden slinky escalator may seem, it's design is actually pretty involved. In addition to the zen Slinky-descent you see above, creator Matthias Wandel also published an enlightening video about the construction of this DIY device, including all the flubs and mistakes along the way."
