    I just saw these articles, and they sparked my imagination.

    Short Blurb With Picture

    Longer Article

    Basically, IBM has developed a chip set using 802.15.3c that could transmit one gigabit/second with a range of about 10 meters (Hi-Def?). If IBM can get OEMs to build these into their components, it could potentially replace interconnects where running them would normally be difficult or undesirable. And clearly, there are other potential applications for this tech as well.


    Seems intriguing. Thoughts?

    Will work great until everybody in a highrise has it, and then there won't be enough channels... My 2.4GHz wireless phone only works half the time and my 802.11g WLAN is starting to have problems as my neighbours croud into the limited number of channels. There's only so much wireless bandwidth, and we're all sharing it!

    For those in the burbs with nearest neighbours long out of range, enjoy it!
