Capitalizing on the latest developments in 5G and ultra-low delay networking as well as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics, we advocate here for the emergence of an entirely novel Internet which will enable the delivery of skills in digital form. We outline the technical challenges which need to be overcome to enable such a vision, i.e., on the development of a 5G Tactile Internet, standardized haptic codecs, and AI to enable the perception of zero delay networks. The paper is concluded with an overview on the current capabilities, and the standardization initiatives in the IEEE 5G Tactile Internet standards working group as well as the IEEE 5G Initiative.
