Climbing the walls

The IBM sim has long been more than just a set of sandboxes.  The latest project being incubated at an IBM sim is a tribute to M.C. Escher’s “House of Stairs” in the form of a giant stone castle.  Not just a painting, but an actual build, where you can walk down the stairs, find yourself going up the stairs, and then fall sideways onto the roof.  Courtesy of Colin Fizgig.  Thank you, sir!

Can you say “Neato Peachy Keen”?  I thought you could!

The build is still in development but it’s already fun and cool and a marvel and rather confusing.  So go!  The LM/SLURL is rather wonky, so fly once you get there and be prepared to circle.  But you can make your way into the stony, dizzying goodness.
