New re­al­ity at GI­TEX

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

This café has no hu­mans. You or­der your drink on a tablet and the robo hands move to the dis­pens­ing ma­chine to get the cho­sen drink. The ro­bot then puts it on a tiny drinks con­veyor belt for de­liv­ery.

There was the chance to play a game of Air Hockey against a robotic arm that pre­dicts move­ment and re­sponds to tac­tics.
