Dutch artist made a tattoo for the first time in the world by remotely controlling a robotic arm with a typewriter via a 5G network.
In order to demonstrate the high quality of its 5th generation mobile network, T-Mobile’s Netherlands subsidiary decided to use remote tattooing technology..
The technical team equipped the robotic arm with a special machine, pre-setting it so that the needle penetrates the skin only to a certain depth. The device and camera have been connected to a remote control system via a 5G network.
As part of the project, master Wes Thomas tattooed Dutch actress Stein Fransen, who voluntarily agreed to take part.
Tattoo artists will be able to work remotely using a new robotic system
The experiment was successful and demonstrated that an innovative approach allows such manipulations to be safely carried out remotely in real time..
Such e-skin devices will also allow doctors to treat patients remotely..
