Climbing walls has been a popular outdoor sport. While not many of us can climb real mountains or rocks, climbing walls at sports club and other outdoor venues is a convenient alternative, providing both fun and challenge. Now, Lunar Europe has turned this activity into more fun by connecting it up with iPhone.


The climbing wall that Lunar Europe has created is not like the regular climbing walls; rather it has cutout patterns for the climber’s hands and feet, making climbing lot easier.

However, what makes this fun is that you can sync up your iPhone with this wall. And having done that, you can then choose difficulty levels, selected the option of lighted pathway and a lot more. This is accomplished by studding the holes in the wall with sensors which are able to detect your movement as you climb.

While this sounds cool and fun in theory, the wall may turn out to be impractical as an actual product. Not many of us would want to purchase a wall to feature at our homes and not many may even have a space enough to dedicate to it. Moreover, most climbers like the rough-and-tough environment of actual wall climbing while Lunar Europe’s climbing wall is more of a unique and refined art piece.

So while it may succeed as a showcased product in public venues, it may not gain much traction with the average, common users. Nonetheless, it is an intriguing product and goes on to show how technology is becoming a part of outdoor sports.
