Unleash your inner child with this most excellent invention.

YouTuber Matthias Wandel is behind this Slinky elevator. He was inspired by the idea of a "Slinky stairway that never ends," which, to every 10-year-old sounds like the greatest thing this side of a candy store that has an endless supply of Nerds.

Wandel put in some hard work designing his contraption and he tinkers a lot trying to find just the right speed to make the elevator work smoothly before he finally hits paydirt.

This is altogether awesome, right? Maybe we're going a little bit out on a ledge here, but we think Wandel is a 21st century Thomas Edison, inventing essential items to make our lives better.

On behalf of all the people of Earth, we salute you!
