Campus Party Singapore 2018: LAN Party, VR, retro games and more!

The inaugural Campus Party Singapore just concluded yesterday. Held at the Singapore Expo Hall 7, it attracted tech enthusiasts of every stripe to this community-building event. On top of the many talks and workshops available, there was a wide range of activities for attendees to explore, with many being more interesting than you’d expect.

We’ve previously featured The Drone Zone, a specialized obstacle course for miniature drones to race through. Run by Performance Rotors, it has a virtual view that pilots can experience first-hand through VR headsets. While the race is strictly for registered users, interested attendees could have a go at it with rental drones.

Elsewhere, we found an eSports arena by local gaming center Colosseum, powered with PCs by ASUS and monitors from Zowie. Here, attendees and campers can mix, mingle and play games such as Overwatch, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Rainbow Six Siege and more.

Both PC and console games were present.

Hidden to the left of the main stage is a camping area for those who bought the three-day all-access pass. It’s an opportunity for these campers to play, talk and connect with other campers and guest speakers from all over the world.

For something a little more hands-on, attendees could turn to the various activities and games dotting the venue. Look at the “brain-controlled” shooter for example. which uses electroencephalography (EEG) readings to steady your rifle:-

We also found the more “traditional” fare too, such as retro game stations with Castlevania, Super Mario Bros and Contra. As for those itching to get creative, there are interactive drawing boards that attendees can feel free to doodle on.
