DisplayLink and Alereon have announced a reference design of a wireless USB display adapter which allows you to wirelessly connect a display to your PC.
The reference design enables PC accessory OEMs to easily develop wireless display connectivity adapters and similar products. It will be demonstrated publicly by Alereon at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2008) from Jan. 7-12, 2008 in Las Vegas.
The reference design pairs Alereon’s WiMedia Alliance certified AL5000 chipset with DisplayLink’s network display technology to provide displays without the wires. The company claims it is the only adapter design available that allows manufacturers to produce a Wireless USB adapter that meets all regulatory requirements across the globe.
Wireless USB delivers fast ultra-wideband (UWB) speeds using a standard wireless USB input and output resolutions up to 1680 x1050 and 16.7 million colors for smooth DVD video playback and quick responsiveness.
Pretty cool for displays of up to 22" but I doubt that consumers will run wild for it as displays with wireless USB will cost about $150 more than an equivalent non-wireless model and then you also need an adapter which will cost between $150-250.
