What do you have to do to get a former NASA engineer, a toymaker, neuroscientist, Korean cosplayers, one-time principal solo artist with Cirque du Soleil, drone pilots, AI practitioner, VR/AR enthusiasts, blockchain experts, and robotics geeks in the same place, at the same time?
First edition of Campus Party in Asia
These are some of the “Campuseros” who will be at the first edition of Campus Party in Asia held at the Singapore Expo from 6 to 8 July 2018. Participants or fellow Campuseros from diverse fields and a myriad interests and expertise will come together to share knowledge, collaborate on projects, and network for 72 hours over a 3-day unique camping event.
Programming: Six Tech Domains
Programmes at Campus Party Singapore will revolve around six domains: Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Vehicles, Blockchain, the Internet of Things, Robotics and Drones, Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR).
Festival-goers will live, breathe, and learn in three festival areas:
Campus Party Arena
This innovation incubator zone is a mind space designed to foster maximum creativity. Aside from conferences, there will be workshops and non-stop challenges meant to empower, challenge, and impart knowledge 24 hours a day.
Campus Party Village
“Campuseros” can retreat to their own “village” – a uniquely designed camp site for participants from all walks of life – to rest, yak with likeminded people, discover collaborative possibilities, and recharge for another day of challenges!
Campus Party Experience
A magnet for incurably curious people, this is where Campuseros can soak up everything from inspiring performances to innovative showcases to organically-presented displays to exhibits that allow participants to see and touch the future.
Highlight at the festival include:
The ultimate quest for survival that involves the Internet of Things and Makers Community. Campuseros will get to choose between being a “zombie” or “human” in this heart-racing event. Teamwork and collaboration is key to coming out of the zombie apocalypse alive.
Gamers curious about what goes on behind the scenes of your favourite games, including green screen magic, Singapore Cyber Sports & Online Gaming Association (SCOGA), Twitch and Nanyang Polytechnic will curate a special experience zone for gamers. Another slice of heaven gamers won’t want to miss at the Campus Party Camping Zone is a round-the-clock LAN/console gaming fest featuring Players’ Unknown Battlegrounds or PUBG.
Robotics x Cosplay
Watch the collaboration between Team CSL from Korea and Nullspace Robotics from Singapore. Campuseros can see how robotics and technology can play a part in the making of breathtaking animated costumes.
Here comes the ultimate mind control race featuring … cockroaches! Maker, speaker, and “roach surgeon” Bill Reith from Backyard Brains will show you how to do “roach surgery”. The winning roach in this challenge will score crypto currency by Bountie!
Drone Race/Drone Fly Pass
Drone lovers can build a drone from scratch and let it take flight in an amazing Drone Race via an exciting UV-lighted racecourse specially curated for Campus Party Singapore. Get the Drone Fly Pass for a truly immersive experience.
Hello, Campus Party Kids!
Little ones can ditch their school books on Day 3 of the festival, which is open to young ‘uns. Aside from meeting a real-life NASA engineer, kids can learn to build toys, programme robots, play games such as Minecraft!
