Testing a Stair-Climbing Wheelchair

Cambry from JerryRigEverything uses a wheelchair to get around, but obstacles like staircases can certainly get in the way. So she and her husband Zack reached out to Scewo to test out their amazing motorized wheelchair, which not only can climb stairs but can go off-road, and lift its passenger to a standing height.

The last time we saw someone dance on a staircase, it was in Joker. While that was a memorable cinematic moment, Joaquin Phoenix has nothing on the moves of Tuzelity Shuffle, who showed off their impressive synchronized dancing skills on the stairs at an IKEA store.

FPV drone pilot Tony Catapano aka Tonnoz takes us on a flight through the twisty and turny art installation known as Tiger and Turtle. Located in Duisburg, Germany, the interactive sculpture allows visitors to walk along its undulating staircase like a human rollercoaster. It’s especially awesome lit up at night.

We imagine it’s hard enough to walk on level ground while balancing another person on your head. Giang Quoc Nghiep and Giang Quoc Co pulled off the trick while climbing up 100 stairs. They did it in record time, ascending to the top of the staircase in just 53 seconds.

The Great Vertical Wall

The Great Wall of China is renowned for its astounding 13,171-mile length. But there’s one part of the wall that’s especially notable, not for its length but its height. Parts of the now crumbling Jiankou section are insanely steep and only possible to climb by the most fearless explorers.

Transforming Spiral Staircase

The Eclettica staircase is a space-saving piece of functional decor. It stands as a vertical storage tower, but can transform into a spiral staircase for accessing a loft. Its motorized drive mechanism rotates the stairs around a central pivot. The steps can be configured as bookcases, drawers, shoe racks, or bottle racks.

Bcompact Folding Stairs

Bcompact Folding Stairs

Bcompact’s hybrid bamboo staircase is hinged and attaches to one wall, so it can fold up flat when not in use. They feature an aluminum handrail on one side that folds along with the stairs. Each one is custom-fitted for the specific installation. The video shows off a few other folding items from designer Zev Bianchi.
