Augmented Climbing Wall

Augmented Climbing Wall is the world's first global gaming platform for climbing walls.

"We chose the X605 to sit at the heart of the solution because it has a great price to quality ratio, great reliability and produces outstanding brightness."
The founder of Augmented Climbing Walls, Dr Raine Kajastila

"The games and applications make the training fun, motivate and give feedback to help you become a better climber."
Dr Raine Kajastila

"The Augmented Climbing Wall is always under active development. New games and features are being developed all the time to ensure the system stays fresh."
Dr Raine Kajastila

"It is really easy for children to use. All of the games are on a monitor for them to select and we have a member of staff on standby in case they need help. The most popular game for our younger customers is Whack a Bat. The Sparks game is a little trickier and more challenging. So, there is something for everyone!"
General Manager at Jump Ninja in Manchester, Hailey Edwards

Augmented Climbing Wall takes climbing to a whole new level

Challenge

Augmented Climbing Wall is the world’s first global gaming platform for climbing and bouldering walls. It combines projected graphics and body tracking to create interactive games and training applications.

Solution 

Augmented Climbing Walls interactive games are projected onto a white wall with white climbing holds. The sophisticated system is programmed to recognize individual human body parts, making the games responsive to climbers’ movements. At its heart is a bright 6,000-lumen X605 Optoma projector, an Xbox Kinect – a motion tracking camera using Valo Motion’s own computer vision algorithms and a powerful customized Intel PC running software developed by the team.

Results

Augmented Climbing Walls have now been installed across Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, UK, France, Germany in Europe, as well as Canada, USA, South Korea, Singapore and Australia. The founder of Augmented Climbing Walls, Dr Raine Kajastila, said: “We have had an absolutely brilliant, overwhelming response from both climbers and operators.” Jump Ninja in Manchester is one of two centers in the UK with an Augmented Climbing Wall. Hailey Edwards is the General Manager at the center. She said: “Our customers’ response to the wall has been incredibly positive. I hadn’t expected it to be as popular as it is. The children love it but it is also attracting serious climbers to our center.”
