Some 200,000 people and 3,000 companies have come together at CeBIT in the German city of Hannover to celebrate all things digital.
One of the big trends at CeBIT is virtual reality (VR), the ability to touch things. Euronews reporter Jeremy Wilkes visited the stand of Japan’s NTT Group where he donned a VR headset and a pair of massive gloves to try out a football game system.
“We are adding in the VR a shock on your hand and also a shock on your stomach, this is the most advanced VR system in the world,” explained NTT vice president and growth hacker Kazunari Moriuchi.
NTT, historically a Japanese telecoms company, is investing in all the big ICT trends, not just Virtual Reality. The group president Hiroo Unoura set out his vision to Euronews.
“The important point for us is how each company in our group can help our clients and users to create new business models or new systems in different fields,” he said.
