DigiWall

DigiWall looks like a traditional climbing-wall but it’s actually a computer game you climb upon.

Every climbing-hold is equipped with a sensor that registers hands and feet. In that way DigiWall can keep track on where on the wall the climber or climbers are. This opens up for a large number of games, exercises and competitions of various kinds. DigiWall is also a musical instrument. The climbing-holds acts as keys on a keyboard and music is played according to your climbing. The grips can be lit up from the inside and behind the wall there is a large hi-fi system. Together this gives a climbing-wall with new possibilities. In games, competitions, for practicing co-operation and for music creativity the experience intensifies with help from the music and the sound. The built-in light in the holds show you the way and rules for competition.

Digiwall has been shown at a number of exhibitions and twice at WIRED NextFest, the premier showcase of global innovations. View a TV show clip from DigiWall at Wired NextFest 2007:
