Mobile World Congress 2016 – Last Day Highlights

The key to MWC16 day four is a large cup of coffee (or two) and an extra pair of legs to walk endless exhibition halls. On the last day, we decided to visit the Gamelab Mobile event and take a look at the most curious projects. Once again we saw that mobile is everything. Mobile drives forward services, wearables, communication and fun.
 
A game you can … wear
 
This year Gamelab Mobile explores the innovation in gaming that changes the way we interact with games.
 
MadRat Games presented a Super Suit, which is a wearable gaming device for kids that consists of gloves and a vest. It works as laser tag now, but provides an open platform for any game development. This wearable should help with the problem of kids spending 8-12 hours in front of the TV, an iPhone, and/or tablet screens.

RoBoHoN from Sharp is a kind of smartphone robot that you can carry around and use as a virtual assistant. It will have an open platform by the time of release in Japan in a couple of months. Would anyone want to make calls using a tiny robot and carry this robot in your pocket? We’ll see.

A brave new world of smart devices

 

 AT&T is now providing connectivity for Audi cars. We checked out the Audi r8 2017 and it felt (and looked) pretty good.

Nokia’s smart projector, beta-version, reminds us of the Minority Report movie:

Etisalat’s virtual mall allows users to interact with chosen stores and make purchases anywhere. For example, while you are waiting for the bus or navigating the subway. The idea is to make the online shopping experience easier and faster instead of scrolling through items on a website. You literally put products into a 3D shopping bag.

After the success of PetCube, it became clear that animals could be a great inspiration for smart devices. LG presented a Rolling Bot that works as a sitter for your pet while you are not home. It works through the smartphone’s Bluetooth. You can keep an eye on the house with the camera and use the laser pointer to play with a pet. Isn’t that cute?

App Installs While watching various presentations and testing multiple devices was fun, it encourages us to form thoughts on the future of IoT and wearables and the role of mobile marketing in it. We are excited to be a part of this cutting-edge technology ecosystem and support innovative software that drives us forward into the connected future.
