It never occured to me that I would win a lucky draw. However, when Pete gave me the Gold pass of MWCS, I realized, I'm lucky after all.
MWC is a magical place.
Not even the hottest weather would stop the people’s excitement for the show. Guests clad in their suits and ties, hustling and bustling between different venues in the show. The dazzling lights and thrilling music added to the atmosphere of this incredible site of mobile innovations, bringing together the industry’s most brilliant minds.
The 5G Trend
The veil was finally lifted on the rumors of 5G technologies. Three major operators – China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom – all announced that 5G capabilities would be available by 2020. 5G technologies will bring us communication speeds of up to 1GB/s, with delays of less than 10 milliseconds.
China Mobile, together with SAIC and Huawei, demonstrated the world’s first 5G-based automatic and remote driving technology.
China Telecom and Nokia Bell showcased the results of joint research on the simulation of 5G on high-speed trains. The results showed that while in a high-speed train, 5G could achieve a rate of 100MB/s.
China Unicom also showcased 5G in three major scenarios, with one example using VR to control self-propelled underwater aircrafts demonstrating the large bandwidth, low latency and high reliability of 5G.
Exhibitions from Leica, Meitu and SenseTime and other brands allowed beauty enthusiasts to have a first-hand experience with the technology.
The Meitu camera speaks for itself. It’s a great quality phone. Open the front facing camera and you will feel like the person on-screen is too beautiful to be real.
Leica has also developed an S7 body fat composition scale, which can detect 6 aspects of your physical data: your body weight, BMI, fat percentage, muscle, bone density and water mass. It’s a comprehensive measure of your health, with intelligent management of health data.
Hacking technology was also widely seen at the exhibition, such as camera facial expression and recognition to measure gender, age, skin tone etc. And yes, the results are fairly accurate.
Eye-opening VR experience
If you saw people with huge goggles on, and constantly making exaggerated body movements, you shouldn’t have been surprised, they were just completely immersed in the world of VR.
In this exhibition, the use of VR technology was apparent in a wide range of fields: games, advertising, publishing, sports, live-streaming ... anything you can conjure up can be relayed through VR. The live show included sports experiences like ping pong, boxing and archery; in the medical field there were demonstrations from the WiseMind VR treatment platform; in hospitality there were VR hotel models and VR wedding previews to explore, and lastly, industrial applications displayed motorcycle and jet Aircraft models.
It was definitely an eye-opener.
