Top 5 most interesting things from Mobile World Congress 2016

Mobile
[MUSIC] The biggest mobile showcase of the year, Mobile World Congress 2016, is history. Here are the top five most interesting things at the MWC 2016 th in Barcelona. Number five:VR everything .Phones aren't the only thing at this show. VR was all over Barcelona this year. LG had a new take on the VR headset [MUSIC] The LG 360 VR. All the brains are in the phone, so the headsets you wear are like glasses. Pretty neat in concept. Also, both Samsung and LG introduced new cameras that take 350 degree pictures. So, you have these cool pictures to look at if you have a VR headset. Number 4, LG rolling bot. Look at this thing. It's a remote controlled spherical robot. It's made by LG and it has camera, an IR sensors, mic, and speakers. It can even project a LASER in case you want your pets to chase it around the house. I've had a soft spot for robo-pets, maybe the next version of this thing will have an autonomous mode. At number three, Sony's concepts. Sony has some of the more interesting concepts on display. Check out the Experia Projector. It will project a screen on any flat surface. You can then interact with that screen, using your voice, gestures, and touch. I'm not sure if the projector will ever see the light of day, but a product of Sony that will definitely Launch is the Xperia Ear. It's a Bluetooth earbud that connects to your phone that can handle voices. Essentially, Sony's trying to put a personal assistant in your ear. That sounds kind of weird now that I hear it out loud. At number two, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge. Okay so visually the S7 and S7 Edge aren't radical departures from the Galaxy S6 line. But Samsung made some revisions that are great. Both the S7 and the S7 Edge have microSD card slots, and are water resistant. So you can expand the storage, then chuck it into a pool. What's that? Don't do that? Okay, so it's probably not advisable to do that. Whatever. Samsung also packed in some interesting tech inside of the S7. It's water cool to keep the system from overheating. You can record gameplay on the actual phone. It's pretty nifty. Before we get to number one, there's something that was flat-out insane from MWC 2016. Check out the stage from Samsung's Unpacked event, where it unveiled its new gadget. It's like a scene out of an alien invasion movie. On to number one. The most interesting thing on the show is the LG G5. How do you stand out in a world when almost every phone looks alike? You add an expansion for it. The LG G5 has a removable battery that you can access by pulling on the phone's chin. And that's also how you add [UNKNOWN] to the G5. A camera attachment brings a shutter button and a dial to zoom into pictures. There's also an audio attachment that [UNKNOWN] audio. These could be big, or not. But it's definitely interesting. That does it for us. For more top fives like this, visit top5.cnet.com. I'm Iyaz, and we'll see you later.
