Get ready to feel the adrenaline as the Asia Motion E-Sports Association introduces Hong Kong’s first e-sports stadium! Boasting 3,400sq ft, the AME E-Sports Stadium has five main e-sports facilities, including skiing, where you can experience being part of the US national skiing team; boxing with smart punching bags loaded with sensors; rowing across Victoria Harbour; horse racing, and cycling that mimics the famous Lung Wo Road cycling competition route. All of them are AME self-developed games incorporating VR multiplayer systems and professional sports simulators.
To make the experience even more realistic and exciting, players will be able to create an avatar on the AME platform with AI and AR technology, while wearing a smart bracelet designed specifically for interactive e-sports to analyse their performance. Data will then be collected to generate a report that illustrates their fitness level in power, balance, coordination, agility, speed, reaction, as well as the number of calories burned during the session. This allows players to understand their strengths and weaknesses in order to have a better training plan, and eventually become an all-rounded athlete – virtually, that is.
For those who are interested, there are currently two modes of participation. Single-player ($80 per experience), or if you’re planning to go with friends, a group player option ($280 per person), where you and your squad will have the chance to play championship matches and win major spending discounts at the stadium. AME Stadium is officially opening its doors to the public today (September 23) and is expected to open until June 30, 2021. Andrea Wong
