Imagine getting in shape and becoming more active as a by-product of having fun and playing games.
Atlas merges connected workout equipment with digital gaming to deliver an engaging and challenging exercise experience in the comfort of your own home.
‘With this self-initiated study project, we were interested to explore an area that truly merged physical and digital worlds; where each enriched the other and became more than the sum of the individual parts.’
Crude dumbbells are transformed into colourful and playful spheres that evenly surround the hands. The polished stainless-steel handles are comfortable, easy to keep clean and contain the technology enabling them to work seamlessly with the app.
Mirroring the appeal of computer games, the Atlas app challenges, guides, engages and rewards users to beat their best again and again.
The Atlas app scales effortlessly from the intimacy of a smartphone to a wall-filling flat-screen experience.
At home in the home
Atlas is designed to be visually appealing as well as a pleasure to use, so the dumbbells can stay out in our living spaces instead of having to be stored away.
Embedded motion sensors, wireless connection and vibration feedback create a seamless link between the physical world of exercise and the digital world of gaming.
