What Nokia has REALLY been working on.

During the day, I'm gon na use this Nokia 9 PureView to capture a photo in bra and because of how much data or or photo contains, I'll, also show you my edited versions, which bring it out there's a little entrance with a nokia logo, but it's only One I stepped into the first main room that I had to physically stop and take it in oh and, of course, get that photo on the phone. This experience centre kind of feels like a city and of itself it's filled with tech, demos, loads of hands on stuff, but the main reason we're here is this: no, not via table tennis, primarily there's, an area dedicated to 5g because you might not have known nokia. Actually makes the only globally available 5g solution, so that means, if a company wanted to provide 5g, then they would come to Nakia to build the cell towers and everything that goes with it, and one of the most underrated benefits of this 5g is latency. 5G. Has about 110 of the latency of 4G, which means whatever you're doing through it can effectively happen in real time, and I can actually show you a couple of interesting real world examples of that to robotic arms trying to balance a ball with 4G. You can flick the ball and it will almost reach the end before the robots realised and responded, but with 5g it was almost an instantaneous reaction. Finally, just before we headed off, I also tried scoring goals versus one goalkeeper with 4G levels of latency and then one with 5g, and because of how much faster mr.

5g could respond, you can imagine it was harder all right off. We went. We were now headed to a Finnish forest for that pretty crazy unboxing experience, it's kind of amazing that within 30 minutes we'd driven from the dense city of Helsinki, to what felt a lot like the middle of nowhere. I met with the team that was helping me out today and I got a hand lifting what must have been I'm gon na, say at least 15 kilos worth of packaging. It turns out there wasn't, just one, not even two but three parts to this, and so the first one was pretty crypt inside the crate was an absolutely enormous, 32000 milliamp hours worth of battery. The second contained what can only be described as a super sized stabilized camera, and this also has a really unusual quirk about it, which I'll come to in a minute. But I couldn't wait. We had to get inside the big one and once inside you're gon na see a commercial grade product, which means you can't just hop into a shop and buy one, but also that it's capable of doing stuff. You might have never seen before welcome to one of the most forward. Thinking drones, you've ever seen, there's a controller here, it's actually only be backup controller, but still probably the most elaborate I've ever held. There are a couple of stands as well made of real carbon fiber, and the thing itself is a bit of a monster about half the size of me, so you might be thinking I've seen tons of drones before what is the big deal? Well, the product you're.

Looking at right now is a specialised modular drone, and one of the big potential uses is for search and rescue missions – oh yeah and that's exactly what we're about to do, but just before I get to that there's a couple of things I want to show you Here, first of all, the entire frame pretty much carbon fiber, so the body weighs almost nothing, especially compared to that battery pack that slides in on top the drone has built in sensors to be able to see where it's going and you know make sure it doesn't Hit anything on top of that this camera attachment, the one that I showed you earlier actually has two cameras. You'Ve got one which can record in HD and has all four thirty times: optical zoom and the second one is actually an infrared thermal camera. So we set up a control center in a nearby building and before we could do the full search and rescue, we decided to do a test flight from a computer which has the right software. You can see the live, feed coming from the drones cameras, one for the primary cam and one for the thermal anyways. All I was tasked with doing here is running away, so the drone took off and you can see the footage of it doing so right here. I waited for 20 seconds and then BAM like something out of a low budget. A Hollywood film I sprinted away with the drone above what I thought was pretty cool there is that this drone and in fact, Nokia's entire drone Network, runs on its own high bandwidth.

Broadband, which means all this footage you're seeing right now, is not just being recorded by the drone, but also saved onto a sir online in real time action sequence over. So I headed back to the control center to check out some of the footage, and especially when I'm running through the cooler areas in the shade, you can start to see how the thermal camera comes into play when finding people. We also tried the 30 times zoom of the camera, and this is needed so that, even if you're flying a hundred meters above the ground, you can still see anyone who's lost or trapped. Now that may sound like a really neat scenario, but thousands of people per year in Finland alone and get lost like this. I was blown away by the estimates, so you've seen a taste of the drone being controlled by humans, but the vision is actually that the entire thing will soon be automated. Introducing the base station, which protects weather proofs and charges the drone and when you ever into the future 5g connectivity, because there 5g ready you can probably start to see the bigger picture. This gimbal has only one attachment. You could have a loudspeaker that could broadcast important announcements. You could have a chemical sensor that could scan for dangerous things in the air or it could even just have a hook that allow it to pick up packages from one location and drop them to another.

This is not a drone for fun. This is an important piece of the puzzle when we talk about our smart cities of the future, so just before the search and rescue we headed into Nokia's training center nearby for some lunch and as far as training centers go and not bad at all. I just took the phone with me, no camera and I got a few shots of the inside as well as my edited versions, which really bring out the best possible dynamic range. It was go time, so two members of the team volunteered to sprint into the forest and essentially tried to get lost. We sent a patron from our end and use the software to set up an automatic patrol of the entire forest, and you can see on this. Not just the exact path it's going to follow, but also where it is at any point in time. You can also draw in no fly zones. For example, if you had a building above which you didn't want the drone to go, we actually sent up two drones and the job of one of them was just to record footage of the other, and it looks pretty good. You can also see from the thermal camera footage how exposed areas of the ground have absorbed much more of the sun's heat than the trees or covered areas below them. It took about 15 minutes before the guys popped into view, and this whole thing was a pretty cool example of how having these two images side by side can actually capture more.

You see the same thing from two different perspectives in a sense to round this whole thing off. We found a beautiful, pier and use this as an opportunity to take one last photo on that Nokia, not in a pure view. The light behind me was pretty intense, and so it wasn't a surprise that it basically came out as a silhouette. But this is probably the greatest of the transformations in terms of what I was able to bring out with a quick, edit and that's a wrap to find out more about the Nokia dro network, or there 5g plans I'm gon na drop.

    I’m also a small tech reviewer inspiried from you. I have uploaded some travel vlogs also. Give some help if you can.
