Drone racing, combat robots and virtual reality are just the start.
Drones don’t just make great photography tools – you can race them. Drone racing is among the free activities on offer at this year’s Hybrid World Adelaide, as well as software coding, a robot combat tournament led by the Adelaide Robot Combat League and interactive augmented reality (AR) and robotics from STEMplay SA. Thanks to SA Libraries, visitors can also get up close and personal with a range of accessible technology activities from over ten libraries around the state.
You can play with virtual reality thanks to Untethered VR and Ignite VR, and watch an esports Rocket League championship hosted by international esports identity Muselk. And you can chat with strangers from around the world and explore each other’s cultures when the mesmeric Portal returns – a full-body, live audio-visual experience.
Love cosplay? You’ll want to check out the finished ‘Space Junk Punk’ cosplay outfit built days before the event at a series of exclusive workshops led by American programmer Amie DD. The outfit will contain moving parts, electronics, 3D printed objects, craft foam, resin and thermoplastic – just to name a few.
And the fun doesn’t stop when the daylight ends! Join us on the lawns by the River Torrens to experience an exclusive display of moving content on our Water Screen. Rug up, grab a bite from some of Adelaide’s best food trucks and enjoy the show.
Hybrid World Adelaide will also join forces with AVCon to present a range of special events. And there’s still more to come. Stay tuned to hear it first!
Hybrid World Adelaide takes place 20 – 24 July at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Find out more about our Interactive Events.
