TUM University Playground Gets Students to Class with One Drop

The TUM University playground is a giant three-story slide that takes students from point A to point B in a matter of seconds. The Technical University of Munich installs two separate slides inside the institution to create a jolting wake-up call for any tired student. In a matter of seconds, which is rather nerve-racking, users are shot down from a dizzying height.

There are entry slots to the slide from every level with an exit on the main floor. This type of architecture boosts both design and the lives of students looking for some spark in their mundane everyday tasks. In this video, one can clearly see the excitement and glee in these people's face; it's like a childhood revitalization.

For the tardiness folks, this slide installation is just another excuse for not having to be late again.
