Nova is a high-tech climbing wall concept controlled by an iPhone app

Rock climbing and trekking can be fun, but not if you have to practice and toil in the heat and grime. If you want to scale Mt. Kilimanjaro or Mt. Everest’s highs, Lunar Europe has just the concept that fits right into your home decor. Called Nova, it can be controlled with an iPhone app. If you don’t want to climb up, it simply camouflages itself as a backlit sculptured art.

Depending on which trek you pick, the iPhone app lights the intended route with on the wall, and as you climb it rates your performance, based on the difficult level. The wall itself sports panels with pattern-cut-outs that replace the colored holds, giving it a chick look.
