Oh yes! The bendy escalator is finally here!
Let’s face it – going shopping in a mall is a load of old borings isn’t it avid readers? You know, when compared to something like, say, locking yourself in a wooden cabin in the middle of nowhere and watching the whole of Twin Peaks on DVD instead.
The best part about mall shopping is invariably going on the escalators, and if you’ve got a toddler, then you’ve got cast-iron excuse for escalator-riding to make up about 85% of your activities.
Now the future is here, and with it, the opportunity to ramp those stats up to the high 90s – it’s the bendy escalator. It’s called the Levytator and it has been developed by London-based boffin Professor Jack Levy and yes he has named it after himself and why not eh?
The boring old straight-up-and-down escalator could soon be a thing of the past once these things become commonplace. The prof is looking for investors to help make it a reality although we're not sure how he'd get it up the stairs of the Den. But soon, the streets will be filled with these things and we won’t have to walk between bakeries any more...
