The Chief Executive Officer of Nokia, Pekka Lundmark, has disclosed smart gadgets will be implanted into human bodies in the next eight years, as technological innovation will evolve into the sixth generation (6G) network.
Lundmark said by 2030 the 6G network will replace the 5G wireless connection which is currently being adopted across the world, and planned for the Nigerian market in the second half of 2022.
He projected 6G, which is currently under development, will make smartphones irrelevant upon completion. Nokia’s chief executive made this known at the World Economic Forum, according to multiple media reports.
His statement comes amid the project of world’s richest man, Elon Musk, which seek to implant chips into the human brain, to create a computer-like visual interface. Currently, a macaque is being used to develop and perfect the chip.
In a video shared by the billionaire, the animal, which had been implanted with the chip, was seen playing “Mind Pong” by moving its hands with thoughts, after being trained to move the joystick.

It was gathered that the most common interface will no longer be smartphones, as user behaviour will change with the advent of 6G. He explained that smart glasses and other technology driven devices will receive preference.
“By then, the smartphone as we know it today will not be the most common interface. Many of these things will be built directly into our bodies.” Money Central quoted Lundmark’s explanation of the future of technology.
