A recent video has been taking the Internet by storm showing a battle between two climbers moving on a rock wall augmented with projections, lights and motion tracking technology. The climbers move from point to point while the interactive wall highlight their movements and adds fun effects to the experience. The wall is built by Augmented Climbing and can be used in a variety of ways to improve the experience of rock climbing.
Watch the video to see how this technology is used to take the classic idea of PONG to a whole new level as the climbers become the paddles, moving from point to point in order to bat a ball of light back and forth. The wall can be used for several different games as well; check some others out at www.augmentedclimbing.com. Hopefully we’ll see this one at IAAPA and wonder how many FECs will make this their next attraction.
