Technology you didn’t know you couldn’t live without
03 March 2019 @ 19:29

NOTHING newly-invented in the world of technology is ever missing from the Mobile World Congress, the biggest and most bang-up-to-date trade fair on the planet.

Hosted annually by Barcelona, the 2019 edition of the prestigious MWC ended on Wednesday after welcoming tens of thousands of mostly corporate visitors from every square inch of the globe.

Each year brings a heap of gadgets and concepts designed to make our lives easier and more efficient, to embarrass the living daylights out of those who still use fax machines and tape the music charts on a Sunday, and to show us what the near future of everyday living and working is likely to hold.

Not a single corner of life is missing from the technological revolution: farming, education, healthcare, entertainment, cooking and cleaning, and communication are just a handful of the activities pervaded by digital progress, and it’s all seen under one roof in Spain’s second-largest city every February.

Here’s what’s new from the MWC 2019, and you’ll wonder how you coped before they were invented.


Surgical streaming

Using 5G technology, the world’s top surgeons can talk local hospitals through complex operations without even having to board a plane. Barcelona’s Hospital Clínic gave a real-time demonstration of how a top doctor on another continent can oversee the process when you go under knife.

All we need now is a home version for DIY surgery to cut waiting lists – or a direct 5G streaming service to Obstetrics in case your wife goes into labour at home and it’s too late to get her to the maternity ward.
