100+ K-12 inventors from 4 countries in Asia present solutions to real world problems at virtual event!
Using a mixed-reality platform developed by event sponsor and Singapore-based LDR Technology, visitors from around the world can embark on a tour of student inventions, presentations from renowned speakers, and partner and sponsor showcases — all taking place from historic Fort Canning.
“Accessible via web, audiences can navigate from location to location through maps, recommendations, and thumbnails in a 360-degree virtual world,” explained Png Bee Hin, CEO & Founder, LDR Technology. “Some unique features include a customisable virtual presenters’ stage, live streams and live chats, and customisable booths where participants can create their own interactive content.”
“The mixed-reality platform was beyond expectations as it was extremely interactive and fun,” said student inventor Liu Hongyu from Singapore. “I have been to quite a few webinars and competitions that were held virtually, and by far this has been the best experience.”
“I was so impressed — blown away really — by the amazing opportunity to be transported around the world to experience Invention Convention Singapore in this virtual environment,” added Carolyn Ward, a competition judge from the U.S. “The execution of bringing sponsors, inventors, and speakers to life through this technology was outstanding.”
