University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) participates in the seventeenth edition of the Madrid Science Week with more than thirty activities (all free-of-charge) that will offer a first-hand knowledge of the Institution’s R&D program. IMDEA Networks is collaborating with UC3M in the staging of a multimedia, theatrical and informative show that explores the effects of 5G technology in our everyday lives. The show will held on November 7th in the Auditorium of the UC3M.
This educational show, entitled “5G on stage: this technology will change your life (and you don’t know it yet)”, will combine dance, music, theater and audiovisual elements to explain how 5G technology will influence our lives and everydayness in the years to come. Hyperconnectivity, the Internet of Things, drones … how does technology affect the way we live and relate to the environment and those around us? We will be presented with an example: that of a couple in 2017, when falling in love; and in 2027, about to have a child, when 5G technology is fully implemented.
