Man With No Intention of Growing Up Builds Awesome Slinky Elevator

Subscribe to TheFW on

Unleash your inner child with this most excellent invention.

YouTuber Matthias Wandel is behind this Slinky elevator. He was inspired by the idea of a “Slinky stairway that never ends,” which, to every 10-year-old sounds like the greatest thing this side of a candy store that has an endless supply of Nerds.

Wandel put in some hard work designing his contraption and he tinkers a lot trying to find just the right speed to make the elevator work smoothly before he finally hits paydirt.

This is altogether awesome, right? Maybe we’re going a little bit out on a ledge here, but we think Wandel is a 21st century Thomas Edison, inventing essential items to make our lives better.

On behalf of all the people of Earth, we salute you!
