Inspired by Oscar ‘the Blade Runner’ Pistorius, this project set the goal to create a prosthesis for indoor wall climbing. The final design is strong in its simplicity and aesthetics. A modular system allows for changing the tip of the hook as required to grab the next climbing hold. The tips are carried on the harness and can be (dis)mounted with a single action. The main strength of the design lies in the fact that there is no explanation needed to use it, just go and learn along the way!
