An initiative that might disappoint those advocating walking for daily physical activity, the university of Munich in Germany has installed in its hall two impressive slides that carry students down three floors in a few seconds. There are entry-points to the slides on every floor with a final exit on the ground floor. Management argues it enhances the lives of students. In any case, this playful innovation has won a bit of publicity for the Bavarian university. One less excuse for arriving late to class.
