Saudi Aramco's pavilion at the Esports World Cup, the largest event in gaming history being held at Boulevard Riyadh City until August 25, stands out with three main activities that have caught visitors' attention and enriched their experience.

These activities are part of Aramco's ongoing efforts to boost interaction and engagement with the community through creative and innovative approaches.

The pavilion includes an event titled "Virtual Reality Races on Jeddah Corniche Circuit," one of the main attractions offering visitors a unique experience through competitive races in a virtual environment simulating the famous Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

Races are held twice daily, offering participants the chance to win daily prizes. Additionally, weekend races qualify winners for the grand prize provided by Aramco.

The experience not only provides entertainment but also fosters a competitive spirit and encourages technical skills among youth.

Aramco also presents visitors to its pavilion with a virtual experience titled "Aramco Vision," a two-minute virtual journey that takes visitors on a tour through the company's facilities.

It highlights major future projects like NEOM, providing visitors with a comprehensive view of Aramco's ambitious achievements and future ventures.

The third activity is the virtual racing experience at Boulevard Riyadh, which allows visitors to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of racing. The activity offers an immersive experience that enables visitors to test their abilities and skills in racing within a meticulously simulated real-world environment.

Through these activities, Aramco is emphasizing its ongoing commitment to boosting innovation and creativity across various fields, attracting youth to an enjoyable and challenging experience. This helps in strengthening the company's leading position in innovation and technology.

Intuitive Surgical on Thursday beat estimates for second-quarter profit and revenue on growing demand for its surgical robots used in minimally invasive procedures, sending its shares up 6.7% after the bell.
Investor expectations around medical device makers have grown lately on hopes of elevated demand for surgical procedures as people, especially older adults, opt for medical procedures deferred during the pandemic, Reuters said.
On an adjusted basis, Intuitive earned $1.78 per share for the quarter ended June 30, beating analysts' estimates of $1.54 per share, according to LSEG data.
The company reported quarterly revenue of $2.01 billion, compared with analysts' estimates of $1.97 billion.
The rise in revenue was driven in part by growth in the procedure volume from the company's surgical robots called da Vinci. Worldwide da Vinci procedure volumes rose about 17%, from a year ago, the company said.
Industry bellwether Johnson & Johnson on Wednesday posted a 2.2% rise in second quarter sales at its medical technology business, but fell short of analysts' estimates.
Larger peer Abbott Laboratories also raised its annual profit forecast, helped by double-digit growth in sales of its glucose monitors and strong demand for heart devices.
