6G: Speed Technology Ecosystem Undergoes A Revolution; Could This Be a Gamechanger For India?

Indian Government Aspires To Stay Ahead Of The Curve With 6g Technology Read More!

The upcoming 6g mobile technology will revolutionize the telecom industry and could plausibly render IoT-enabled augmented reality and virtual reality obsolete. 6g is anticipated to be widely available in the year 2030 and could trigger a transformation of the IoT into the Internet of Senses.

Internet of Senses

Modern digital technology primarily relies on sight and sound. However, experts claim that in addition to its high network density and speed, 6G will also empower consumers to touch, feel, and even smell in the digital world. Tech behemoths like Meta are transforming thoughts and ideas into action by incorporating brain as the user interface in research. Therefore, the brain interface will contact the number on your phone if you are thinking about doing so without using the touchscreen. 

Unrealistic, right? Probably yes, but several global tech firms and other niche industry players are already en route to create digital sensory experiences that are very comparable to those we have in the real world. Haptics, or the technology that can simulate contact, is a crucial component of this. Utilizing wearable devices such as haptic gloves with numerous sensors that deliver the user enhanced tactile input like pressure, vibration, and texture to simulate realistic touch, is being tested by businesses.

Indian telcos have tested it in 5G healthcare apps, including Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea. Medical professionals, for instance, have employed the haptic glove to contact and feel while performing a remote ultrasound on a screen. 6G would facilitate progressing up the food chain for precise remote robotic operations seem like cakewalk.

If the cost of haptic devices decreases, the technology could have a wide range of applications. Given their uber-high cost, numerous Indian firms have begun to construct them for industrial utilization, including in e-commerce where customers may touch, feel, and taste products before purchase, as well as in business, particularly in training programs.

6g technology has also made the virtual experience of scents a reality. This would slash down the cost of retail outlets since users would be able to compare fragrances online. According to Ericsson research of white-collar professionals, nearly 60% believe that “digital aroma,” where users may virtually visit forests or the countryside and inhale the local odor, would one day be a reality.

Technological advancements could foster the development of smarter, more compact AR/VR glasses that can identify people even if you forget their name and recall specifics about where you previously met them. Holographic technology can enable communication with a photorealistic human representation on immersive platforms, and the experience rendered by those sensory platforms can be comparable to a genuine human connection in the actual world.
