The Magic of Connection #KeepConnecting

Merry Christmas Marlowe, love Uma

A broken leg means Marlowe can't go sledging with his sister Uma. He won't get to experience the first sprinklings of snow... not from outside, at least.

The immersive augmented reality experience, with the feeling of haptic to transfer touch - powered by the real-time speed of our 5G network - show us that the future's literally at their fingertips. With his TESLASUIT and his virtual reality headset, and with Uma's 360-degree camera and her Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, means Marlow can enjoy the magical moments Christmas has to offer... even from inside.

We're celebrating the connection between siblings, and the way tech can bridge the physical gaps between us, now and in the years to come. Some of the tech in this story won't be available for this Christmas. But it's not too far away.

Light Up your Christmas

A magical light display - powered by 5G - and designed by... your little ones.
