A Perpetual Slinky Treadmill Might be Humanity's Greatest Achievement

By Andrew Liszewski on at

The Slinky has always been at its most entertaining while walking down a flight of stairs. But it's a short-lived thrill—over as quickly as it started—given most staircases only rise a single story. And that's why some genius, working in some secret laboratory, came up with Project NESM—otherwise known as the Never Ending Slinky Machine.

Powered by a simple USB connection to your computer, this strategically angled tiny treadmill will keep your Slinky walking downhill for as long as you can supply it with power. And in turn it will provide you with an endless source of distraction from your work, your studies, or your family.

The London-based creators of Project NESM are currently attempting to raise £20,000 on Kickstarter to put it into production, so that everyone can have one at home. [Kickstarter - Project NESM via Gizmag]
