When designers have too much fun…

So according to Ya Plakal, a Russian design/photo/humor/bad soft porn site (just a warning, it’d be a cool site if it weren’t for the latter), this is a prototype created by several designers for an expo in London.  The use?  According to the post, to increase the speed with which employees can move between offices and floors in a workplace.

Practical?  No.  Fun?  Yes!  I doubt it will ever be put into use (at least in lawsuit happy US), but when you combine play + creativity in the hands of designers, great ridiculous things can happen!  Maybe prototype #1 is a bit outlandish, but #99 could take us somewhere phenomenal…
