The exhibition "100 GHz to midnight" deals with the simulation of the postapocalyptic world using modern computer games. In the more classic type of online shooting games, the player fights against other teams in the team. Over the last decade, shooting games have become popular, where everyone stands up for themselves and the playing area is many times larger.

Battle Royale is a term used to describe a multi-player fight as long as only one survives. At the beginning of the game, the player has nothing. All equipment must be found in the play area. Finding good equipment often determines the outcome of a conflict. Although the shrinking playing field forces players to keep moving, it is possible to avoid opponents and wait until the dangerous situation passes. In real life, this may be the smartest tactic. Simulating crisis situations in this way can be taken as a measure to prevent black scenarios outside the game.

At the competition level, these games require a fairly powerful computer. To stand out in the market, sophisticated lighting solutions, known as RGB (red-green-blue), have been added to gaming hardware. The transparent computer case has become a separate exhibit, in which, in addition to the power of computer components, various RGB solutions can also be viewed. The preapocalyptic beautiful life overshadows the course of events on the horizon.
