In 2012, Lunar Europe came up with this concept for the Nova Boulder Trainer. It quickly became associated with a bad April Fool’s prank, even though this video was posted in June. The only cool part of this video is using LED’s to illuminate certain holds, which is a feature that nowadays can be seen in nicer climbing gyms (but that wasn’t the case in 2012). Otherwise this concept fell flat in several ways, as you can read in this article about how this ‘Revolutionary Climbing Wall Changes the Game of Indoor Training.’
