About

HADO is an amazing Augmented Reality based gaming system. It can involve teams of up to 4 in direct live rapid fire combat where teams can shoot energy balls, raise shields, or dodge incoming fire all live and in real time. There is an established HADO league in Japan with a grand prize each year of $100,000, and free air fare there ect. But as of yet, no US teams. That's what we want to fix! But first we need to build the 'arenas'. And that's where you all come in! Donate today, and help the US represent in the first international AR sport in the world! 

Why support AR? Augmented Reality has proven in early group studies and marketing research to be far more applicable in community settings like arcades, bars, or entertainment venues simply because you still see those around you. VR is great, don't get us wrong, but it is designed to isolate you from your environment and take you to a far away place. However HADO has you right there with your friends in a fun environment playing cutting edge AR games and possibly competing on a world stage.

Once we reach our funding goal, we will immediately begin setting up our first facility here in the tech savvy city of Austin, TX. We plan on offering free training for registered teams, and renting out the arena to kids and patrons of all ages to keep the HADO arena development going. 

Risks and challenges

We see the biggest risk as finding that good middle ground of a great arena and a great place to watch said battles. We want our teams and patrons to enjoy watching the battles as much as playing them so our facilities will be designed with this in mind.

The second biggest hurdle will be getting the news out about a new and technology based sport. This is why we've chosen Austin as our flagship arena. The city is very tech savvy and filled with our key demographic of possible patrons and enthusiasts.

The technology is based on established systems, so that won't be a problem, and we expect that there will be a quickly evolving community of gamers who really, really, enjoy what this game has to offer ;)
