Discipline: Product

Free Climbing is a new type of product whose surface can be changed by an app. Users can select the difficulty level to define the appearance of the surface so that it matches their current skills or takes them to the next level. At the same time, the route can be recorded and stored so that users can compare it with earlier records.

I have never tried rock-climbing for the fear of the heights; however, I would love to give it a go if possible. The work Climbing Wall can be set up by the APP to manipulate the wall's angle and climbing level, just like playing a Rubik's cube. I think it's a very clever design and I really hope I could try it myself!
