What is the Globally Played AR Sports HADO?
HADO is a sport that combines Augmented Reality (AR) technology through a head-mounted display and arm sensor on a real-world court where players can freely run to compete. Three-player teams leverage their skills by firing energy balls and placing shields to accumulate points in an 80-second match.
【HADO Rules Video】
HADO is a simple but strategic team sport that anyone throughout all generations can enjoy regardless of age, gender, or physical abilities. Before the match, players allocate ten points across the four different parameters for the bullet size, bullet speed, reload speed, and shield strength in an effort to tailor the game to their strengths and weaknesses.
