Shaping the Future of Sports

The MultiBall Hackathon - Sponsored by Fun With Balls, Hype & Force of Disruption

The Munich startup Fun With Balls has declared war on growing inactivity with a successful mixture of real sports and motivating gaming in mixed reality. In our digital age, there is too little focus on movement and sport, like many aspects of daily life, is in a state of flux, which gave rise to the idea of the first "mixed reality sport".

Multiball by Fun With Balls

What started with interactiveSQUASH is now arriving in the mainstream of fitness centers, schools and hotels with the next product, MultiBall. With the startup system, balls are precisely tracked during sports to play a variety of games and trainings on an interactive wall. The selection of over thirty games on the platform leaves nothing to be desired. From Space Invaders with a football to tennis-volley training, there is something for everyone. Gaming is always connected with a real workout. The team around founder Markos Kern is no newcomer to ISPO and already won the ISPO Brandnew Award in 2017. Together with the company Force of Disruption from Munich, Fun With Balls is now launching a first-class experience at ISPO Munich 2020.

Ob Squash- Tennis- oder Softball, die Multiballwände bieten etliche Möglichkeiten für Spaß und Bewegung.

The Multiball Hackathon at the ISPO Munich 2020

The world's first MultiBall Hackathon will also celebrate its premiere this year at ISPO Munich 2020. The sports of the future are to be developed here. Teams are struggling with their ideas to use this novel platform to be able to publish their game, developed in a few days, on all Multiball systems worldwide.

Four teams with a total of 16 participants will compete against each other. Each team consists of a programmer, a sports expert, a project manager responsible for concept development and a graphic designer. The teams have 18 hours to complete the projects before the winners are selected by a jury and chosen at the award ceremony on Wednesday.
