See this ingenious way to turn stairs into a playground
Imagine being able to unfurl a specially designed set of foam mats and take a ride down your stairs. That's the idea behind SlideRider.
This cool new plaything transforms a home stairway into an "inside slide" for children, complete with secure safety bumpers so they're unlikely to get hurt. When the kids are done playing, it just rolls up in its storage case until they're ready to go at it again.
The team at Quirky reviewed it, saw its potential, and created a red and blue prototype based on the Quirky community's input. They are currently sourcing a manufacturer to mass-produce it and launch Cleveland's invention to a wider audience.
Until that happens, this will remain merely a product-in-development and not a way for the youngsters to fly down the stairs with wild abandon. Sorry kids.
