SportACTIV – an exciting electronic outdoor play zone
This team-based outdoor electronic platform provides a competitive play arena on which both children and adults are challenged to compete against each other. There are five different games set up within the system and, through physically fast and furious activity, the challenge is to beat the opposing team to the finish.
Each satellite, of which there are typically twelve, is a self-contained electronic node incorporating 16 multi-colour LED’s, a touch sensor and speaker. The steel posts on which these are mounted vary in height and satellite angle so that different movements are required during game play. This ensures that many parts of the body are employed in order to reach that target.
