I couldn't view it -- maybe others couldn't as well? It was blocked from my computer as "nud1ty, p*rn*graphy, adult themes." Can you briefly explain what it is? ("Piano stairs" doesn't seem too racey....)

Probably a ''work computer'' thing -- some of the web filters don't like blog sites.

Basically, they encouraged people to take the stairs at a subway rather than the escalator, by painting the stairs like piano keys (one step = one key), and attaching an electronic trigger to each step -- such that standing on each step triggers a piano note.

Making the stairs fun --> more people taking the stairs --> incidental exercise
