BORING work commutes could be a thing of the past with this new trampoline footpath.
Estonian architecture company Salto has unveiled a 52-metre-long footpath that it says gives people “a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment”.
The company says the trampoline path – located in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia, and dubbed “Fast Track” – challenges the concept of traditional infrastructure.
“Fast Track is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context.”
Engineeering mumbo jumbo aside, this footpath just looks fun! And judging from the design images, clothing seems to be optional – most of the models are only partially-clothed.
The quirky invention follows the recent unveiling of a bizarre inflatable trampoline bridge in Paris and a “floating cloud” method of transportation. And earlier this year, a US architect proposed a plan to build a series of walkways connecting buildings in the skies in New York City.
