OnePlus has announced today the world’s first 5G-powered interactive snowball fight, which will take place starting 9 March 2020 for more than 70 consecutive hours in Finland. The experience will allow anyone from around the world to control the OnePlus Snowbots in a live snowball fight. To demonstrate the true 5G potential and how this can change the way people interact with smartphones, OnePlus developed custom-made snowball-firing robots: Snowbots.
The Snowbots will be operated through OnePlus devices with a 5G network, brought to the remote Lapland region by Finnish operator Elisa, allowing thousands of community members from across the globe to experience a seamless and lag-free offline-to-online gaming experience like never seen before.
The OnePlus Snowbot Battle, hosted in Ruka-Kuusamo area, Lapland, Finland, will start on 9 March 2020 at 12:00pm GMT with a special Human vs. Robots event, that will see a selected number of people join in teams to play against the 5G-powered Snowbots operated by users from all across the world. From the evening 9 March to 12 March, the Snowbot Battle will run 24 hours a day, allowing everyone to join a team in the ultimate snowball fight.
OnePlus will host a special community contest on its social channels to select a few lucky users who will have the opportunity to travel to Lapland and join the OnePlus Snowbot Battle in person. For more details, log onto https://www.oneplus.in/snowbots
