Imagine walking on a road that’s made up of a trampoline. All you’ll have to do is to jump up and down until you arrive at your desired destination. That might sound absurd and a little hard to implement, but design firm Salto is doing it anyway. Designers Maarja Kask, Karli Luik, and Ralf Lõoke unveiled a 170-foot or 51 meter trampoline called “Fast track” at the 2012 Archstoyanie festival in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia.
In case you didn’t know, Archstoyanie is basically an annual creative festival held in the forest of Nikola-Lenivets, Russia. Fast track, according to the designers, is an “attempt to create an intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and can correspond to the local context, giving the user a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment.” Salto’s 170-foot trampoline could pave the way for modern-day commuting. But it’s important to note that it is just a concept for now.Related articles:
