Watch: Ericsson’s new film demonstrates 5G potential
Scenes from the ambitious film project offer a glimpse of what 5G has in store for the future
To highlight the new age of 5G, Ericsson has joined forces with leading tech profiles in a film that pays homage to connectivity and the innovation it sparks.
To fit the theme of being seamlessly connected, the 90-second cinematic has been shot in a single fast-paced take.
The film features Haben Girma, the first ever Deafblind Harvard Law School graduate, in a driverless car; gaming pioneer AtomicMari inside her own immersive gaming universe; singer-songwriter KIDDO; Paris Saint-Germain footballer Nadia Nadim; and scientist Danica Kragic remote-operating a pair of robotic arms.
Magnus Frodigh, VP head of Ericsson research, said the scenes from the film offer a glimpse of what 5G has in store for the future. “We are on the verge of making these technologies a reality, which will revolutionise our lives in ways we can’t imagine yet. With connectivity being an increasingly natural part of society, we want to show how it will enable innovation to thrive – while highlighting people who inspire us to push our limits.”
Girma, an internationally acclaimed disability rights advocate who opens the film, says connectivity can revolutionise accessibility in the tech industry – particularly in terms of mobility.
“Imagine a future where a deafblind person can control a car. Technology designed with access in mind will advance equal opportunities for people with disabilities, increasing our ability to work, study and travel with ease and freedom. It can drive growth, improve the experience for disabled and non-disabled consumers, and spark new innovation. If we plan for it, tech will create a barrier-free future,” said Girma.
