This "floating staircase" was designed by Jordi Vayreda of Jordivayreda Projectteam (Spain). It may look dangerous, but that's only because the guard-rails are made of the same invisible material as the risers. Link (via Neatorama)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
