Last week we saw firsthand the innovations presented at MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS.

As this year’s slogan says, MOBILE IS EVERYTHING, we can confirm that this Congress is no longer just a conference to present the new features of the new mobile phones but a congress which brings together all the innovations in mobility, where all the elements are interconnected.

Every time we can see more things connected to the network, and thanks to its intelligence those things can facilitate our day to day routines, it is called Internet of Things (IoT). Currently there are almost 5 billion IoT devices, and it is expected to be 50 billion in 2020. All this devices will use 5G technology, which is 200 times faster than the current 4G.

Cars are connected each other to achieve a more safety and efficient driving. Doors opening just bringing our mobile phone, leaving aside the traditional set of keys. Cameras recording 360 degrees. The evolution of new laptops, which are pretty much tablets with keyboards.

An important development that will facilitate the life to all of us is the e-sim, which will allow us to forget the traditional SIM and enjoy more advantages, such as speed change of telecom operator or have more than one number in the same mobile phone.

Virtual reality were a great attraction not only for videogame lovers, but also for marketing managers of different companies chose it to create a virtual world where attendees could live unique experiences.

Everyone is talking about graphene, which is a great discover and it is called the material of the future. Graphene is carbon, like diamonds, but graphene has properties that makes it unique; It is 200 times stronger than steel, super flexible and light, heat and electrical conductive, and all that in just one atom thick.

The applications of this material goes from flexible displays, more efficient batteries for mobiles, or it may even be a perfect substitute for the solar panels. It also have biomedical applications such as small bracelets that can measure heart rate, or by an implant it would be able to predict epileptic seizures and warn the patient before it happens.

The appearance of all this devices has resulted in the need to create platforms that can manage all this data and process them to add a real value to these IoT devices. These platform endow intelligence to understand and carry out the necessary actions based on the information provided by the device’s sensors.

This is an industry that basically unites many industries that traditionally were not too related to technology. Now we can see that the future is in our homes, cars, cities, agricultural fields and also people incorporating technology with artificial intelligence to help them in their daily routines.

Kiasu, meanwhile, is completely in line with the concepts and future bets that large companies have presented at the congress. Kiasu researches, develops and brings technological innovation to the traditional textile industry to provide new solutions to old problems.
