This would be an extra large diameter slinky optimally sized to walk down an escalator.
This one did pretty well [csea, Jul 14 2009]

This one is less well suited, takes multiple steps and gets stuck... [csea, Jul 14 2009]
upon searching "extra large slinky"
I know, I know. My websearch prowess is impeccable. [daseva, Jul 20 2009]
||This is brilliant! Presumably, it's walking down an upscalator?
And its walking speed would match the escalator speed,
producing a perpetual walking-on-the-spot effect?
||There are a number of YouTube videos showing attempts with normal-sized slinkies. [links]
||Thanks csea, I tried searching myself, and found videos of several failed attempts to send a regular slinky down an escalator (including the second one you linked to), but wasn't persistant enough to find that first link you posted :)
||Bun if the idea is as [MaxwellBuchanan] describes.
