An oversized computer keyboard is set up as a Kletterwand (a climbing wall like the ones alpinists use to train for a vertical ascent) on the façade of the University of Art in Linz. The key combinations of program commands have to be climbed and triggered by touch. Experts from two fields—programming and climbing—collaborate. The duration of the climb up the façade introduces a time delay into the otherwise instantaneous and invisible process of programming.
This “World’s biggest keyboard” is connected to a monitor. This keyboard is unveiled at Ars Electronica 2003 and the spokeman of this keyboard said that
Visitors go through a trainee program to learn software development skills. Programmers and climbers work collaboratively in an oversized programming environment.
