Enjoying AR at HadoSingapore

{Media Invite}

The kids and me

The kids and me

There is a new place in town where the kids can have some  afternoon fun. Located at 2 Orchard Link, *Scape Co. Ltd, #02-15 HadoSingapore is a space  where one can try out games like the  HadoShoot,  Hado Monster Battle or have a go at PvP.

There was two main battle arenas in the shop. The one nearer the entrance was for  Hado Shoot and Hado Monster Battle. I played the game together with the kids and had the whole experience on how AR can stimulate your senses.

Before we played the games the battler masters gave us a briefing on the gear that we would be using and how they operated. Each of us were given a headset which was made up of a Iphone attached to magnifying glasses.  The software being use to project the monsters and other creatures had been pre-loaded to the phone which was linked to a main server.

Augmented Reality  (AR) games are different from Virtual Reality (VR) game as they require movement on the part of the player and are not restricted by cables nor have gadgets like swords or guns to handle. Each player is strapped on with a headset and a hand sensor  which co-ordinates with the sensors on the walls that they are facing. Embedded in the colorful graphics on the wall were motion sensors that could detect the swipe of a player’s hand  as they launch cannonballs and their location while actively engaging in the game.

We were given Ipods are motion sensors like the one in the picture above when we played PvP. Each player could modify how “strong” they wanted their shield, big their cannonball should be, speed of their bulllet etc

Here is a video that was shot during our playtime. It shows how the players interact with each other using their hands to blast cannonballs etc  We had a 3V3 with the battlemasters and it was boys vs girls.

Here is a video which I took showing how the game plays out from the players lens.

It can be said out of the 3 games the kids love the PvP the best as they had a total of 5 rounds in different formats -2 Vs 2, 3 vs 3, 1 vs 1. We can’t wait to revisit the place when the Hado Karts make their way to Singapore in the 1st quarter of 2018.

On Children’s Day the kids and I were invited for lunch over at Food Lovers Only by AT Marketing Counsultancy. A very bubbly Abby greeted us at the restaurant and introduced us to the various dishes on the menu.

The toys on the shelf attracted Tiger girl when we entered the restaurant. The displays  were really kid friendly and she gravitated towards the toys and started playing while her brother choose the dishes they wanted to eat.

It was our 2nd visit to Food Lovers Only a  Halal certified medium size cafe on the 2nd floor of IMM.   There has been some additions to their K-FLO menu and the kids were looking forward to trying the dishes there.

Don’t the dishes look yummy?? Unfortunately the kids were not keen on trying them out so we  ordered something else instead.

 

Apple Salad

Apple  Mushroom Salad $11.90

I ordered a Apple Mushroom Salad for myself as I wanted to keep it light for my lunch.  The Mesclun, apple, mushroom, walnut, cherry tomato and balsamic dressing made it a  tantalizing dish to savor.

Milkshakes for the kids

$7 Milkshakes for the kids

 The kids have been craving for milkshakes and were delighted that they served it at Food Lovers Only. We ordered a Strawberry, Cookies & Cream  and Vanilla milkshake. Can you guess which kid had which milkshake?

French Toast which Tiger girl ordered

Tiger girl didn’t want something too filling also so she decided on Flo’s French Toast ($13.50). She was attracted by the fruits on the toast as blueberries and strawberries are her favourite.

The dish was really aesthetically appealing but fell a bit short for her as she complained that it was a bit too sweet for her liking.

The Club sandwich that Doggie Boy had

FLO’s Club sandwich ($15.90) that Doggie Boy had

Brioche, turkey ham, sliced tomato, marinated pulled chicken slices, cucumber and egg mayo was what Doggie boy dug into during lunch.  He loved the blend of tastes as he munched down on the sandwich.

Beef Bulgogi Sandwich

Beef Bulgogi Sandwich $17

Monkey boy ordered for himself a bulgogi sandwich  which was made of  Panini, beef slices, sautéed onion, sliced tomato, cheese and bulgogi dressing with a side of chips and salad.

Tom Yum Pasta

Tom Yum  Prawn Pasta $18.60

Abby ordered this for herself.   Spaghetti, Prawn , Mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, garlic, chili, chives , cream and cheese.  It smelled really nice and she mentioned that it was very tasty too. Maybe the next time that I visit the place I may order this to try.

A meal is never complete without dessert!!

Upon Abby’s recommendation we ordered the Sweet Divine ($15)

Freshly baked crispy waffle, pavlova, mini marshmallows, premium vanilla bean ice cream, maple sauce, chocolate sauce, horlick sauce at the side. . The dessert was served with coconut  and chocolate ice-cream. It would be great if they had a wider selection of ice-cream as Tiger girl actually wanted strawberry ice-cream on the waffle but it wasn’t available.

The kids weren’t able to finish their dessert as it was a bit too sweet for their liking.   However overall we enjoyed our meal and wouldn’t mind visiting  Food Lovers Only again for lunch.
