rSIM (Resilient SIM)

Dropped networks has become more of a hassle these days, as you must have heard about the massive network disruption that cut off AT&T's services. To sort this up, MWC 2024 brought up the rSIM (resilient SIM), which automatically conducts a network testing every 60 seconds on your phone, and if it detects any issues expected, it switches the network over to another backup network. It is expected to cost you more than the traditional SIMs in the market.

ZapBox: The Vision Pro alternative

As the Apple Vision Pro comes with a high price tag, the ZapBox, revealed at the MWC 2024, provides a more budget-friendly VR experience. This compact headset is priced at $100 and serves as a housing for your phone. It includes an adjustable headset, lenses to secure your iPhone, and Bluetooth controllers. There is little delay when using it for AI, although navigating the apps can be a bit challenging. While using a phone for VR is not something efficient, the ZapBox introduces some innovative ways for app development that could set it apart.
