Project HEX is a Hyper Evolving eXperience working on a new and innovative design of the Personal Mobility Device (eg. E-Scooter, Hoverboard, One-Wheel etc. etc.) and repurposing these devices as a Recreational Mobility Device. The whole experience includes a Capture-the-Flag team game and a Dynamic Arena that offers replayability and human-human interactions. Project Hex started off with the Government’s year 2020 plan to have 360km of Park connectors around the whole of Singapore, which is an increase of 200km from today. These park connectors will form part of the ultimate 700km long extensive networks of walking and cycling paths envisioned by our country leaders. As envisioned, Singapore is to be a City in a Garden to find and pursue innova- tive ways to connect blue and green spaces to let our people seamlessly move and commute from one location and another. Project Hex evolved as laws has been set against reckless “riding” and “driving” of such vehicles where there was an increasing cases of accidents and deaths due to recklessness of using such PMDs. Therefore, Project Hex gives a futuristic take on the situation and allow enthusiasts of the extreme sports to be able to enjoy and compete in a controlled environment and at the same time, improving the user experience of the product and maximum gaming experience and replay ability with one another.
