Piano Stairs Encourages 66% to Skip Escalator

By Laura Moncur @ 11:00 am — Filed under:

As a rabid fan of DDR, I know that adding fun to your workout will make you more likely to do it. These folks proved it again by creating piano stairs.

They measured the number of people who took the escalator versus the stairs before and then created the piano stairs. When they remeasured, 66% more people chose the stairs over the escalator.

The next time your workout feels like drudgery, choose something FUN instead. Play a game with friends, workout with the Wii, or play DDR. Your exercise routine doesn’t have to be boring. It can be as fun as climbing piano stairs.

    ok maybe I am an idiot for asking this question, but how did they get the stairs to make the piano music??? were there some type of sensors there that when they stepped on them it did it?????????? I am curious how this happened!!
