The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 promise to exhibit not only the highest standards in human endurance and physical ability, but also some wild, cutting-edge technology never visible (or invisible) before at a public event of this size. Here are some of the most interesting technologies on display featuring AI and VR to artificial shooting stars, among others. In October 2017, the NTT Group established a consortium comprising six companies with SoftBank, Facebook, Amazon, PLDT, and PCCW Global to begin constructing "JUPITER", a large-capacity optical submarine cable system linking the United States, Japan, and the Philippines. Construction is currently scheduled for completion in March 2020. "JUPITER" has the speed to transmit approximately six hours of high vision images (about three full movies) in one second.
