    Hi Friends,

    Robots are cool... therefore I'm very excited to finally reveal our OnePlus Snowbots! Experience the speed of 5G in the first-ever interactive snowball fight, with people from all over the world. We have built snowball-firing robots that are powered by OnePlus 5G phones, we call them Snowbots. Games start March 9, are you ready?

    Game Details:
    The battles start on March 9 at 2 PM Finnish time (12 PM GMT), tune in to our opening ceremony where we kick off with a Humans vs Snowbots showdown. Watch as a team of familiar faces gets pummelled with snow trying to defeat an opposing team controlling the Snowbots. Once we have finally proven who is better, humans or robots, it’s your turn to command the Snowbots!

    Our Snowbots never sleep, so the battles will run 24 hours a day until midnight (Finnish time) March 12. All you need is a good WiFi connection (or 5G!) and your phone. You will only be allowed to play once, to give as many people a chance to play. We will have a queue system in place, so if you want to play you will need to have your phone near you ready to jump in! If you are lucky enough to play, you'll take full control of one of our four Snowbots in Lapland. Be sure to turn on screen record and share the action back on here! For more details, head over to oneplus.com/snowbots.

    The best part is, you can be there with us! We’re taking 18 people with us on this all-inclusive trip to Lapland.

    @Pym C. it's a cool idea, now it all makes sense - kinda. :p

    Hopefully the technical aspect of it won't give you any trouble.

    Good luck to everyone that's going to try and win a trip to Finland, safe flights too.

    Pretty sure that doesn't look like snow on the image header, my man. I mean, look at the similarities:

    Wow! This is amazing, @Pym C. Would have been a nice April 1st prank if you wouldn't have made it already. Sounds cool. Hopefully I can get a shot at it.

    All the best to everyone.

    Why I want to experience Snowbots in Lapland:

    I love Finland and have always wanted to visit Lapland. I have spent half a year in Helsinki with Erasmus and have also met the OnePlus team during the "Firetruck" marketing stunt at Aalto University (you can spot my Twitter message in the marketing video! [e]1f601[/e]). It would be awesome to meet the team again, but this time during an epic snowball battle!

    Who my friend is:

    I would take my twin brother with me, who was too busy to visit me while I was in Finland last year. So, this would solve two problems, he would see Finland and we would both be fighting against the bots!

    Which European country we’re from: Hungary, Budapest

    I'd love to go to Finland with my SO, as we both love adventuring and exploring new places! We both also love technology and photography so this will be a great time to experience both!

    Even though Finland isn't that different from our country Norway, we still believe it will be great fun!
