Techathon 3.0

Challenge 2: Create a Meta-stadium or Meta-plex

Ganesh had a tiring day in the office and wants to unwind. It is 9 pm and he puts on his Oculus and enters the MSquared meta-plex. He decides to play KBC with Amitabh, and after winning INR 25,000 (he should have focused more on Civics in school!), he decides to take a flight. He dons his aviator wings and takes off for Miami to meet his friends on the beach. They surf for a while and stop for some Pizza. They buy an NFT pack and win seats to the Dodgers' game, where they sit in the front row and watch the game in 3D.

Your challenge: What would you build as the ultimate escapism venue? This is your chance. Build a Meta-plex or a Meta-stadium experience. Game on! Show us what you have got!
