Discover W5's biggest exhibit ever! Climbit is an unusual mixture of physical fun, exploration and art! This huge multi-storey climbing structure, which is a cross between a maze and a jungle gym, takes over the Atrium at the heart of W5.
The first of its kind in the UK and Ireland, Climbit is a unique, visually elegant, three dimensional sculpture specially designed for climbing. Oval platforms suspended from steel pipes and cables let visitors traverse over, under and through the amazing structure.
Meet RoboThespian, W5's new permanent exhibit which is completely unique to the island of Ireland. RoboThespian is a life sized, humanoid, interactive robot who can move, speak, educate, interact and entertain!
RoboThespian is primarily a robot actor and performer. He is fully interactive, user friendly, and capable of communicating and entertaining in a way that few people will have experienced before. This static, humanoid robot can be controlled by the visitor, via a touchscreen panel, and can sing, greet, inform, act and even do impressions. Visitors can choose from a wide range of pre-programmed performance sequences or can even control RoboThespian's movement and voice to create performance pieces of their own.
