Huawei News Technologies Huawei demos the power of 5G and Mate 30 Pro with a Kung Fu Fight By Rehan Rasheed Posted on February 6, 2020 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr If you say Huawei is on the fastest track of 5G development in the world, it won’t be a lie. The company is so passionate about 5G and its application. It’s currently said to be years ahead of any other company in 5G development. In the midst of trade issues with US and other European countries, Huawei is not pausing its 5G development. We know how 5G is going to be a factor in communications, healthcare, safety, and autonomous cars. With all that aside, Huawei released a video titled, KungFu Showdown, with a tag line “The pain feels real in 5G” to tell what 5G would mean in gaming. The team created a virtual arena in the 5G environment with Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G phone. A real fighter wears a haptic body vest and a VR headset, all connected through its positioning/tracking system. The whole wearable tech includes a Huawei VR Glass, an Optic HMD tracking, Haptic Body Vest, Haptic Arm Band, Optic Hand Tracking, Haptic Foot Strap, Optic Leg Tracking, and a Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G for Real-Time Rendering. An IR Positional Tracking Reference is also present, away from the fighter. The data is processed with the connected 5G phone and then delivered to the server through the 5G network. Every movement of the fighter is transmitted in real-time and only 5G could make it possible with high response speed. Thanks to the low-latency feature of the 5G network and the support of 5G phones that in-game synchronization is achieved. Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G renders everything the fighter sees through the VR glass. On the other side, the gamer with a Mate 30 Pro 5G in hands, is facing the fighter in the game, wearing his own Haptic Body Vest and Haptic Arm Band. When the fighter punches, the gamer feels the blow instantaneously even if both are hundreds of miles away. The demonstration shows how the 5G network and a powerful phone work together to provide seamless real-time gaming experience. The instant haptic feedback is the most incredible factor in this whole demo. You can watch how the team is working behind the scene and evaluating the data being processed while real-time gameplay is on go. This is not an implementation for regular mobile gamer as you would need all that equipment to “feel the pain”. However, this demonstration indeed tells how powerful the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is. It works all along the real fighter rendering his movements and processing within the game with no response time issues. Not to mention that the transmission of the data this-fast is only possible with 5G network.
