・HADO Techno Sports vs eSports
In Turkey, many people associate eSports with competitions taking place entirely in front of computers. HADO has many distinctly unique features that separate it from this conventional idea. One of the biggest is the ability for players to move freely around a real-world court. The techno sport requires players to be technically strategic as well as having the physical skill for flawless execution. HADO also offers families with concerns about typical eSports a unique option. Parents and children alike can bond through both exercise and technology.
