Holland has come up with a novel way to make sure its commuters get to work on time: a 'transfer accelerator' or 'slide' to replace station stairs.

The accelerator - which is basically like a cool fun-park slide - means you can cut the train station stairs out of your tedious getting-to-work journey.

At night the slide - designed by HIK Ontwerpers as part of their ongoing urban installations series - is said to play music by Bach.

We want them, too!
