Volkswagen built this piano stairway in Stockholm, Sweden as part of their fun theory project, which aims to change people’s behavior for the better through fun. That is a great strategy.

    I loved the video and the idea is fantastic. I would like to do something like this at the naval base where I work.

    Do you know the cost or an estimate of the price of doing this? Can you put me in contact with someone from the VW project that I can communicate with about the project details?

    Thank you very much.

    Great and practical idea. People will no longer choose the escalators from now on 🙂 A little ingenuity and there you go: poeple having fun, doing a little fitness training, and even having a laugh, just from using the Metro. A+
