'The Light of the Internet' expo has kicked off in east China's water town of Wuzhen, as part of this year's World Internet Conference.

More than 50 companies have gathered to exhibiting the latest technologies and products.

Our reporter Luo Wen tells more about the future this technology expo is showing us.


The sound you just heard was a man asking a robot to switch on the humidifier and play Chinese Singer Jay Chou's song.

It's just one of many products on show at "The light of the Internet" expo in Wuzhen.

Altogether, the technologies and products on show give us a glimpse of what a future world could look like.

Among them is a self-driving car developed by China's search engine giant Baidu.

"This self-driving car can automatically identify the objects around it. And the core of this car is intelligence decision. It can change lane and change directions automatically to avoid other obstacles, cars and so on."

Not far from Baidu's car is a more surprising product, a mind-control racing car.

"By using this brainwave collector, we can measure your concentration level and transfer it into data. The voltage of the racing track will be changed based on the data. Then finally the speed of the toy car will be different based on your concentration level."

Also at the expo, online retailer JD.com promotes the concept of a "smart home."

"The future is the era of the 'Internet of Things'. We can use one app to control all the equipment we have. And furthermore, all the equipment can connect with each other. All I need to do is just tell them what I want while lying in my bed. For example, When the PM2.5 reading is above 200, the air purifier will automatically turn on. When I click home on my app, all the equipment that I need will start working."

Also among the highlights of the expo are wearable devices controlled by smart phones.

Miss Chen at the expo expressed how she's been surprised by what a phone can do in the future.

"Now you can't live without internet. You can see lots of high-tech and advanced products here. All the equipment can be controlled by just a phone. "

The 2015 World Internet Conference is set to open on Wednesday.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will give a keynote speech at the opening ceremony.

For CRI, this is Luo Wen.
