This is obviously not a new idea per se, with various Mech movies and the like, but it seems there is actually a real opportunity to launch remote physical sports.

Imagine humans controlling humanoid robots video game style in every communal sport from one-on-one sports like boxing to even team sports such as basketball, soccer, etc.

       Why is 5G specifically required ?   

       Existing hardwire networks can provide efficient communications without resort to RF comms; the "last hundred metres" can be equally well provided by any one of a number of low-power RF technologies.

       Ahhh, riiiiight .....   

       What a good idea.   

       Can we interest you in some lovely 5G-compatible cybernetic enhancement implants, at cost, nothing down, easy terms ... ?

       Directed Energy Weapon... got an App for that ...   

       Marvellous.

       Is it only me, who read this as a "Hypergravity Experiment"?
Mindey, Apr 16 2020
  

       It is only you. That would be "5g", and to be hypergravity it would need to be at leat 6g.   

       5G would imply a change to the Universal Gravitational Constant, "G", as in F = (G * m1 * m2) / r^2 and would cause a gnaB giB.

       I hate those. Always interrupting a perfectly good steak at Milliways with a bunch of commotion for something that's obviously happened before.   

       The trick here will be getting the mechs built. Ordering parts is a tad slow lately.

       Ah, Sir wishes to purchase a BorgCo Interocitor with Quantum Transformation Replicator ... ?   

       We'll send you a price list.

       Only if your business is not associated with Quark, or indeed any Ferengi for that matter.
RayfordSteele, Apr 16 2020
  

       No, this is strictly direct sales. We only use the Ferengi for flogging rubbish to the Klingons. They're handy for taking the blame ...

       ... at which point some pre-teen hacker gets lucky, and takes over your planet.   

       That will top the ratings for weeks ...
