Tightrope Trainer Prototype
The “Tightrope Trainer” is a toy designed to help novices exercise the muscles involved in balancing, and learn techniques to keep their heart rate low. To play, the user must balance according to a sequence shown by the LEDs. Each step in the sequence must be held for a count of 4 heart beats. This is to help users learn how to keep their heart rate low with breathing techniques while still exerting energy keeping their balance. Once the sequence is finished, it can be repeated, or the user can press the button to start a new level.
