TERA by LUNAR Europe: The intelligent fitness mat
16. June 2014
Designer carpet, high-tech device or yoga mat – TERA is all these things.
The TERA fitness mat is the next design concept to a family of interactive objects consisting of VELA (cycle trainer) and NOVA (climbing wall). The three items combine fitness and fashionable living in a harmonious blend. Made of eco-friendly shear wool by premium manufacturer Kvadrat, TERA is an elegant carpet that blends into any contemporary interior. The carpet‘s intelligent surface recognizes movement patterns and transforms seamlessly into an exercise mat, activating a specially developed TERA app. TERA shifts from a design object into a piece of individual high-tech exercise equipment with a multitude of functions.
The circular shape of the mat is designed to accommodate the natural radius of human motion during exercise, making transitions between poses and keeping up the flow of the practice easier. The intuitive concept of the TERA app guides users through training units of different disciplines like Yoga, Pilates or Thai Bo, all with varying degrees of difficulty. Sensors register any pressure exerted on the mat, enabling accurate detection of the user’s body and weight shifts. An innovative LED lighting system shows how to perform the exercises correctly on the mat, while sensors record the training units, which are subsequently analysed with the TERA app. The training data can also be shared with a personal trainer in social media networks. TERA – to be your best
