The interactive training equipment, TacTower, is aimed at
supporting multiple elite athletes, such as handball players
in training their micro-tactical skills in close-contact situations.
It focuses on psychomotor abilities and trains the
skills involved in reading the opponents’ actions and anticipating
the outcome while reacting accordingly. The Tac-
Tower prototype will be demonstrated live, and here we
summarize the main design issues, to give the reader a
sense of how the elite sports context stands out from other
interaction design domains. There is much potential for
interaction design for the elite athletic community, as this
domain holds interesting challenges while also inspiring
relevant, new forms of interaction design for other domains.
