The EM3 version of the Electric Maze was withdrawn from sale in May 2023 due to problems with availability of critical materials and supplier price increases. 
The new EM4 design process started in 2022, and will be completed following the final phase of live customer testing in Q1 2024. 

The prototype image shown was taken in November 2023, shortly before the final prototype units were tested and a short run of production versions were ordered for customer field-testing.
All the spots available for field testing have been filled and we expect this project to be completed in Q2 2024. 
Following that phase we will be investing in the production stock of the EM4 and plan to open the pre-sales list for this new product in May 2024.

Please contact [email protected] to check for the latest update on when the production EM4 units will be available.

The Electric Maze (originally developed by Boyd Watkins at Interel, and now part of RSVP Design) is an innovative, electronically programmable experiential learning activity that challenges teams to find a successful path without triggering a pressure sensitive alarm.
Easily adaptable and programmable, Electric Maze is a team problem solving activity for change management and business process improvement. A wide range of team exercises can be used with this activity including developing a variety of soft skills essential to any organisation's success.

The Electric Maze is a highly motivating learning device that consists of a grid and a control module. The grid is an interconnected set of 12 flexible panels that is marked into 48 squares. Each square can be activated independently using a pressure-sensitive switch, and the free-to-download Smartphone App (iOS or Android). If the square is activated, and if someone steps on it, the maze alarm sounds (and the control box warning light flashes). You can activate and deactivate any square on the maze with the control App.

The Electric Maze, and other learning devices originally produced by Interel can be thought of as learning hardware. Using a computer analogy, the maze can be programmed with 'learning software' for different learning applications. The facilitator manual explains how to install, program, and take down the hardware, and it provides 'learning software' for a variety of learning applications.

The hardware itself is easily programmable, using a smartphone to set-up and change the activated squares on the grid. The smartphone app can also record data from the learning event. 

Set-up can be done within 5 minutes and the App will troubleshoot and confirm the EM4 maze is ready for use.

The EM4 Electric Maze® is a new product design that will contain all the possible operating functions of the EM3 version as outlined below, but will include a number of additional functions made possible by the updated technology included in this product redesign. Field Testing of the new design is expected to be completed in Q2 2024, with production delivery due in Q3 2024.

The EM3 Electric Maze® was an electronically innovative programmable activity that challenged teams to find a successful path without triggering an alarm. The activities used within Electric Maze® (which can be completed in about an hour) clearly demonstrate the importance of many skills that are essential to an organisation's success such as time management, process improvement, leadership and change management within teams.

Originally developed and manufactured by our sister company, Interel Inc., from San Francisco, the Electric Maze® has been used as a successful team building activity around the world for many years in both large and small organisations.

Interel and RSVP Design have co-developed a number of new learning tools and RSVP Design thoroughly recommends Electric Maze® to any organisation who wishes to develop a library of high impact experiential activities.

Electric Maze® is a widely used and popular change management tool providing a powerful learning experience. The unique design assures that the activities carried out are safe and appropriate at all organisational levels, regardless of age, physical condition or cultural orientation. Simple programming of the Maze using an Android or iOS smartphone device creates a training environment that can be custom tailored to meet diverse learning goals.
