The Firewall is an interactive boulder wall with glowing and touch-sensitive climbing holds. Climbers can play interactive audio games on it that span several climb sessions. Storytelling will motivate especially children and starters to continue climbing.
You climb games – you don’t climb routes.
The climbing wall is the playground of an audio game.
The interactive climbing holds serve as interfaces to interact with the game. In order to reach them you must climb with full physical effort.
Infos to the climbing market.
The difficulty of the games adapts to the users. An AI is the individual trainer which challenges the users, but not overwhelms them.

The climbers become part of an immersive story world. The story continues in future climbing sessions, similar to episodes of a serial movie. This way, we want to motivate especially climbing beginners and children to continue, of whom ~93% quickly turn away from climbing due to a lack of guidance.
We want to make it easier for them to get started and use the high potential of audiovisual media to do so.
An audio entertainer guides you through both the training and immersive story worlds. Depending on the situation, he motivates them or taunts them with humor.
The music adapts dynamically to the game situation and optimizes the climbing training.

Though: the climbing holds have a higher purpose: our actual product is not the hardware, but what we do with it: interactive audio games.
Nothing in the world influences you like music does.
It can entertain you, guide you, push you further and even make the wall shake.
The audio trainer encourages you and conveys training-relevant / worth knowing content and fun facts. The users climb through immersive story worlds with ascending game levels. The music is being created for you in real-time.
Choose whatever audio system you prefer: from headphones via precisely directional sound douches, which do not disturb other people around, to concert audio systems.
As usual in storytelling for films, we consciously use emotionally binding and narrative means and let your heart beat faster.
Wow develop software, electronics and audiovisual content.
And we re-invent the climbing sport.
We are passionate about outdoor activities: above all climbing.
One skills complement to one common goal.

A collective of multiple latlights can show customizable light animations adapted to any geometry, eg. audio visualizations.
The Firewall is still part of a research project. During our studies, we already developed the first version of our luminous and touch-sensitive climbing holds.
