The modular steel wall (2m x2m) is constructed of three steel plates (3 mm thickness) bolted to a frame so that vertical joints between the three plates are not bonded but have a small gap of about 2mm. The wall is painted black while the wall and floor sections have white side walls.

There are three obstacles of different shapes, each 10 cm high and 10 cm side length (with permanent magnets in their base) which will be placed on the wall at a minimum distance 30 cm from each other.

The shapes have a cross section of an equilateral triangle, a cuboid side and cylindrical. These are wooded made painted white. In additions, there is ridge of 1 cm high and 1 cm wide.
