LUXOV® to Reveal Gaming Board at Halls & Walls in Friedrichshafen
After an eventful summer as a preferred partner of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) and an official provider at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the LUXOV® team is looking ahead to this fall’s top trade shows.
LUXOV® recently completed a successful trip to IAAPA® ExpoEurope in September and the team is now ready to present their innovative Gaming Board at the annual Halls & Walls/Vertical Pro trade fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany held from November 19 to 20, 2021.
The LUXOV® Gaming Board is a unique interactive gaming platform that allows for climbers of any age and experience level to enjoy the fun of competitive arcade games and physical activity at the same time. The system currently features seven games playable through LUXOV®’s luminous touch-sensitive climbing holds. Each game has three levels of difficulty and three different gameplay modes. For a more connected experience, gym managers can connect to the board on the designated app to change settings and preferences.
Some of the Games Available
- Catch the Butterflies: The players must touch the greatest number of holds, activated randomly, within a set time.
- Stop the Bomb: The objective is to hit the lit holds as quickly as possible. The faster the players move, the more points they earn. If they are too slow, the hold turns red, and they lose a life.
- Snake: Inspired by the famous mobile game, a snake moves randomly on the wall. In a limited amount of time, players much reach the maximum number of green holds before it does. To achieve this, players much move around the wall while avoiding touching the snake.
“The Gaming Board fits in perfectly with recent trends in the urbanization of climbing but also of the gamification of the sport. For our partners, the benefit is twofold: the Gaming Board allows climbing gyms to diversify their offerings, while also being an entry point for those who are not familiar with the sport. With this kind of technology, we have all the cards to bring climbing into a 100% connected area.” Said LUXOV® CEO, Denis Garnier.
