The Slinky was invented in 1945 by Richard James. The naval engineer accidently knocked over a spring he was working with and watched it walk down the books and shelves. Using this as his inspiration, he created the Slinky - which soon became a toy enjoyed through the ages.
How does it keep going down stairs?
The initial energy is transferred along the length of the Slinky as it tips over the edge - which allows it keep the motion going over the next step. The design of the Slinky also allows it to perfectly replicate sound waves and show the effects of echoing.
