Trampoline Floors!

Because, well, why not?
  [vote for,

Put trampolines a foot off the real floor covering all the hallways and parts of some rooms in your house.

Sets come with tubing, springs and an adjustable fabric, so you can cover any and all hallways with a springy trampoline.

Instead of walking around....you can bouce around! Child safe (you can't really fall and get hurt) and stair attachments included.

       Of course, all the furniture would be inflatable.

       I think this one was done here before but specifically as a gym floor for basketball.
bristolz, Jul 25 2004

       [5th] just build trampolines around the furniture.
swimr, Jul 25 2004

       No no, [swimr], I meant that inflatable furniture would be bouncy too, so it woud fit in with the decor. It wasn't a complaint about weight, if that's what you thought.
5th Earth, Jul 25 2004

       ah, ok. I used to have an inflatable couch, man I miss it.
swimr, Jul 25 2004

       actually in some gyms the trampolines are flush with the floor and a pit is underneath, reduces the injury rate.

       I shouldn't have to explain why I've voted for this one.

       You'd have to start building houses with higher ceilings:

Me + 1 foot of trampoline = About 6 inches of jump space.
Crash hat anyone?

       Velcro hats and velcro ceilings?
wagster, Jul 26 2004

       This is why I'm here. Thank you. +

       //and stair attachments included.//   

       Considering the comments about ceiling height here, obviously the best place for the trampoline floor is not as an attachment to the stairs, but in lieu of the entire staircase. Take the stairs out entirely and make all trips between floors require a couple of bounces. [Note: could be a little difficult to master if you enjoy taking a glass of wine or midnight snack to bed with you.]

       Doesn't Bill Gates have a trampoline room?
Ranger Gord, Jul 27 2004

       baked in the basketball sense (see link), but sounds great at home too... (+)
luecke, Jul 27 2004

       Not sure if its been mentioned, but you could get nasty burns from falling on this... ouch.
