This time, China Unicom provided all the communication services for the news centers of the National People's Congress and the National People's Congress. Through one week's deployment, China Unicom has completed the 5G full coverage of the press release Hall of Medea Center, the report hall and the journalists'workspace at home and abroad.

CNN launched its news channel in Magic Leap One
On Thursday, news enthusiasts with Magic Leap One received good news. CNN has released a news application designed specifically for headliners to display news reports from news channels in AR.
CNN applications provide CNN, CNNi and HLN real-time news, on-demand programs and digital exclusive news through Magic Leap's Luminous OS screen functionality.
Users can anchor virtual screens anywhere in the environment, zoom them to any size, and interact with the data layer to learn more about the topics provided in news reports.
In a blog post, Magic Leap also said CNN would soon add more features to the application, further utilizing the device's spatial computing capabilities to expand the boundaries of news reporting. In other words, Wolf Blitzer, a CNN news anchor in volume eric, will appear in our bedroom?
CNN has long been regarded as a pioneer in cable news reporting, but this time, the media giant has lagged behind, as news network Cheddar launched its news channel in Magic Leap One in December.
CNN's move on Magic Leap also reveals another message: AT&, an American Telecom operator; T and Time Warner, the parent company of CNN, in 2017. AT& T has become an investor and strategic content partner for Magic Leap in recent months. As part of the merger of AT&T and Time Warner, CNN will become part of the media empire of AT&T. Therefore, CNN's news application will also be a beta test of AT&T's own application, DirecTV, which was announced last October.
Although Magic Leap One is still considered a developer device rather than a mainstream media device, this has not prevented Magic Leap and its content partners from launching consumer-friendly applications. So far, Star Wars, Angry Birds, American home giant Lowe's and NBA have all launched applications in Magic Leap One. News is another cornerstone of consumer experience.
In addition, Microsoft has made it clear that it is focusing on corporate customers using HoloLens 2. As a result, AT&T has become the sole operator to launch the final consumer version of Magic Leap One, and Magic Leap seems to have a broader access to the consumer AR segment.
& nbsp; the magnificent VR reconstruction project of NHK TV in Japan: real-life restoration of 1964 Tokyo & nbsp;
VR is probably our closest place to travel in time. & nbsp; Japan's NHK Television (NEP) and Japan's creative technology team, Rhizomatiks, have an idea. The two sides announced a new project this week, which will be exhibited next month in SXSW (South by Southwest). Simply named "The Time Machine", the audience returned to Tokyo in 1964. More importantly, instead of returning to Tokyo through descriptions and narratives, the city was rebuilt through the use of live photographs taken that year. The aim is to provide photographically accurate 3D rendering for Tokyo.
See the trailer below.
This photogrammetric process, previously used in VR, is used to protect historical relics. But it's the first time we've seen images of the past and let people go back to the past - so that means the world you see will be black and white.
The project will use HTC Vive, and viewers will find themselves standing at today's iconic Shibuya intersection. They will return to 1964 to visit the statues of Bagong Takashi in front of Shibuya Railway Station, Tokyo Cultural Center and Miyazaka Mountain.
The work, produced by TV producer Mimi Tuya, is part of Tokyo's celebration of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. & nbsp; the last time the Olympic Games were held in Tokyo was 1964.
The "Time Machine" project will be launched and run from March 10 to 13 at the Austin Convention Center in Texas, USA.
