Last but not least Find Your SPARK will be held in Mostar. Mostar's FYS will be the largest this year. This is why we recommend booking Saturday, 14 Sept from 12am to 6pm in your calendars and visiting SPARK in Mostar. GADGET SHOW What’s happening at the event and what gadgets will you be able to try out for free on the Gadget Show? Let's start with the gaming category. Besides the standard consoles of every FYS event like the HTC Vive, XBox, PlayStation VR and Nintendo Switch, there's a Just Dance game where you can show off your dancing skills. Nature lovers can see how the beauties of Herzegovina look through VR goggles but also try out Orqa FPV Goggles. We came across a cool quote on virtual reality on “A picture may speak a thousand words, and video might show you 30 frames per second… but only VR can transcend time and space to give form to the dimension of human thought.”  Our faithful partner at FYS events, SYNC from Mostar will take care of the smart devices and drone categories this year. Google devices and apps work together to make everyday life easier. There are voice-activated speakers, Wi-Fi solutions that emit a powerful signal in your home, advanced cameras that can distinguish between people and things, and many other smart devices. Amazon smart devices can play music, answer questions, read news and audiobooks, alert weather forecasts, report match results, and more. We will also be exhibiting Fibaro, DoorBird, Philips Hue and Nest smart home devices and all the latest DJI drones. The event is free and intended for everyone, but children will enjoy this category in particular. We’re talking about educational robots like Abilix, mBot, STEMI, Ollie, Alpha, Nao, Lego and others. Special attention will be paid to the robotic dog Aibo. Now we come to the electric vehicles category where we have the biggest news. We’ll list it: Greyp G6 bike, INMotion scooter, Xplorer hoverboard, Tesla car, and Toyota hybrids. They aren’ just for watching, but for driving, too! The FSR team will also take part in the event with their latest bolide car. We didn’t forget the indispensable 3D printers that will also be exhibited by our partners INTERA, ZEDA, and ZeForge.
