Harder to Move than a Warehouse of PianosBy Rocky Thompson on October 1st, 2006
A new climbing wall for kids uses lights and sounds to make climbing really basic walls lame. If the object is to grab the lit holds then this guy clearly has no idea whatâ€™s going on.
One cool thing the wall does is use sensors to register your hand and feet placements. It tracks your movements closer than Big Brother and tells you how quickly youâ€™re developing (or deteriorating). Digiwallâ€™s website calls their product, â€œan extraordinary musical instrument that lets you be a musician and composer,â€ since each hold plays a different note when you touch it. Of course, pianos also play different notes with each key you hit, so their â€œextraordinaryâ€ is a bit of a stretch. Also, the Digiwall must be nearly as annoying as anything by Sheryl Crow when more than one person is climbing it.
