The latest innovations shown off at Mobile World Congress include a 5G-connected robot and smart bikes that help riders navigate the city.

SK Telecom's robot is controlled by a human wearing an exoskeleton, and runs on a 5G network so that it can respond to commands almost instantly. The operator believes the experimental technology has potential to help in disaster areas.
