  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    The stairs from the TVs are memories. It is very difficult to walk on it, because of guilt. You go through the plasma screen of the TV, through everything that was in your life. You understand to the depths of your soul, and it seems that you are starting to swim and get out of the other side of the screen leaving your body there, and the soul sees a new ladder up from the TVs.

  4. Colleague Miro Voellmy:

    Tracks are excellent for this use case because they have a very large footprint, which makes it near impossible to tilt, and they are also very smooth so it doesn't feel like you're driving up stairs, so it just feels like you're driving up a ramp because they're so flat and they adapt to the stair profile. So it doesn't matter if the stair is wooden or metal or glass, the tracks they grip and there's no danger of slipping.

  5. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    In matters of climbing long staircases, how many stairs there are is not as important as how strong a will you have!
