Wireless Display Technology

At the Consumer Electronic Show many new technologies, devices, and components are announced, often time it is known before hand what many of these devices will be, but sometimes it is kept a secret until the day it is revealed at CES. Display Link announced wireless display technology over wireless USB. This allows for even less wires in the workstations of PC users. This VGA over wireless USB is achieved by a small USB hub integrated into/behind the monitor allowing the USB to transfer signals between the video card and the monitor. This allows the only cables to be used in a workstation to be the power cables, and we can expect that with time, power will also be transfered wirelessly (maybe).

...the demo setup consists of a mini tower equipped with a Wireless USB dongle that connects to a Wireless USB hub integrated into a typical flat panel display, using DisplayLink's chipset to provide VGA over USB. Response time was fast, and video was surprisingly smooth with no hiccups. Only two cables were used in the demo, and they were just to power the tower and monitor. Don't be surprised if we see this come out as an after market dongle that works with your existing monitor, or if future monitors natively support Wireless USB, as this technology is frighteningly real.

We can only hope to see good things to come from this and hope that it becomes an industry standard, because honestly, who likes wires?
