The deployment of 5G technology will have implications for many digital experiences, including realistic VR. One of the companies that are testing the waters in this space is Finland-based Elisa who worked in collaboration with Varjo to create the most realistic VR experience to date. Showcased at the Slush 2019 event, the product is said to "match the quality of a human eye's vision." Moreover, the companies claim that "the image quality equates to 64 Full HD screens." This is all really impressive when you take into consideration that we are talking about virtual reality.
Elisa provided the 5G network and the 5G edge cloud solution for the prototype, while Varjo supplemented with the goggles. Developing this sort of incredibly realistic VR entails that "5G could enable perfectly natural telepresence everywhere in the world."
