3 cm is quite a limitation. Implementing it in cameras is great idea. You could just place your camera next to your laptop (depending where the receiver is) and quickly download pics and vids without cables. I wonder how much battery power it requires.
This technology has its limitations, but the data rate is very promising. The price would have to come down to the level of bluetooth though.
Hmm; sounds way more advanced than IrDa transfer right. I digress it may be somewhat faster. Although with a distance limitation like that I don't see much of a point really.
I see potential for transfer jet in mp3 players and Pocket PCs like the Ipod Touch. It would be very convenient to just kinda hold your device against someone else's for a few seconds and get the targeted content. The use is limited and mostly for convenience, making the high price tag a major deterrence.
Why do we need this super short range technology? We have USB-3.0 on the horizon already and the actual implementation of this technology doesn't even support it's own advertised speeds. 40Mbps is nowhere close to 560Mbps, so it's already a failing tech toy that they're trying to get back their time and money investment on. I predict a lackluster acceptance and implementation of this newest, greatest, thing
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Yeah realneil thats what I was thinking to. We also have wireless USB coming on as well which has both much greater distance and is faster considerably from what I understand. Intel is also developing something wireless for a transfer medium like this as well, which has the same greater distance and faster throughput. So I doubt this one will be around very long. Of course sony has there own memory stick medium and has for years. The only thing it is used in is Sony components generally.
Wireless USB? This is the first time I'm hearing of it. What are the range and transfer speeds supposed to be like?
