It wasn’t all about smartphones at the Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2023.
Glass for phones that won’t break with a hammer, flexible screens, humanoid robots… There has been everything for everyone at this world congress: What has been the most outstanding and unique…?
For 4 days, up to 88,500 people attended this event in Barcelona (Spain) where, in addition to smartphones, new technological advances from other sectors were presented. Let’s take a look at the most striking examples:
1. Flying cab – Over the next few years, SK Telecom will develop this electric model, which will need to connect to 5G or higher networks to operate in cities, so SK will apply its experience in the telecommunications sector.
2. Hydrogen scooter – The Segway Apex H2 model was presented as a concept in 2021 and it has now become a reality at this fair.
3. Lucid Air 2023 – High-end electric vehicle that competes directly with the Mercedes-Benz EQS 2023 and the Tesla Model S, not suitable for all budgets: you will have to pay about 220,000 euros.
4. Police car – The Tesla Model 3 electric car has all the necessary equipment for law enforcement officers: facial recognition, control cameras, sensors for recognizing car passengers, etc.
5. Silencing aircraft noise – Vueling has developed a system that will prevent this annoying noise, although it will take time for this technology to reach airports.
6. Body recognition robot – It is no longer only facial but recognizes the entire body. It can be used in home surveillance tasks and to manage tickets to macro events.
7. 3D Hologram – Presented by Telefónica, this system can enter any virtual reality environment after creating our hologram in a volumetric capture space.
Finally, let’s not forget the most important curiosities in terms of smartphones, highlighting the Motorola – Lenovo roll-up phone (the concept has been presented, which shows that it is technically possible) and the Techno Chameleon smartphone concept (which allows its casing to vary between 1,600 different colors as many times as the user wants, using a technology of crystals with prisms).
Nubeprint, with a clear vocation for the future, has 7 patents, including the DCA for smartphones, which allows printers to be monitored through this device, the only one of its kind on the market. It is also committed to technological advances and invests 30% of its resources in R&D&I, currently developing BI systems and obtaining the Innovative SME certificate (Innovative SME, AENOR EA 0047) by the end of 2022
