New reality at GITEX
If there’s one stand at Gitex Technology Week that encompasses the entire tech in the show, it is the Etisalat stand. This one is a must visit, even if you are short on time, do not miss this stand. Some of the wonders that are on display include a simulator like device, though you won’t be sitting in a chair, as this one lets you do a full work out using VR tech. Get fit without leaving your home. Another highlight are the dancing screens that are on display. There are these two massive screens at the stand, which move with visuals and music. They turn, go up and down and even join together. There is also healthcare technology on display that helps remote monitoring of patients with chronic diseases. The Otta Project helps patients that are paralysed to use computers and other nifty gadgets.
