That’s the social experiment US website SoulPancake tried out by planting an adult-sized children’s ball pitt on the corner of a busy street, inviting perfect strangers to sit and discuss some of life’s most thought-provoking questions.

Once inside the colourful play-pen, the curious strangers began opening up on a range of personal topics, from ‘What’s on your bucket list?’, ‘Who most inspires you?’ and ‘When did you first fall in love?’ A number of people even discovered they share a common connection, despite having never met each other before.
