Now that the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro have officially ended, it’s time to look ahead to Tokyo 2020 — Japan is a nation known for its technological innovations, and the city’s Olympic games are sure to uphold that reputation.
Olympics organizers are already planning several major tech projects that will surely wow the audience. For starters, guests will be able to interact with robots that will act as concierge, recommending the best places to eat, shop, sightsee and see a show in the city. A tech company is also working hard to create driverless vehicles that will shuttle passengers between venues, while consumer electronics giant Panasonic wants to create wearable translation devices to help guests communicate with Olympics staff and one another.
While 2020 may seem far away, it’ll be here before we know it, and planners of the Tokyo games want to make sure the city is fully prepared to show off its modernity, safety, cleanliness and vibrancy to the thousands of people who will be coming in for the competitions.
What do you expect to see at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo?
