|In 2009, Wahlberg developed a functional prototype of the electronic part of a handball training system, for training speed and tactics. The activation of lights and sensors makes it possible to activate different games to improve the players' performance through sensory-motor training.|
The system consists of 4 bars. Each bar holds 8 plastic spheres.
Each sphere is equipped with 12 pressure sensors and powerful RGB-8 LEDs.
The total height is 2.2 m.
iSport evaluation of TacTowers' first prototype from ACTIVE Institute:
TacTowers is an interactive training tool particularly targeted handball players.
The principles behind TacTowers are movement-based interaction that supports coordination, dribbles and micro tactics in relation to an opponent or a fellow player in a movement-based training game / tool. Most of the existing training games and tools are individual and thus only train the speed, strength or endurance of an individual player.
The project has used the pervasive computing technologies to improve sports and exercise experiences for different types of players, both prospective joggers, active amateur performers, elite athletes as well as audiences to sporting events.
