Combining live data and visual artistry

Returning to Mobile World Congress in 2018, we worked with 2LK and Moving Brands to create a live demonstration of how Intel’s 5G communications will transform how people do business and experience the world.

Building on the technology we developed in 2017, the Wondercube was a stunning combination of live data, visual artistry and #IoT connectivity, and was used as a centrepiece for their booth to showcase how Intel is working with other industry leaders to prototype and and deliver the first 5G products.
