Wireless World

Two observations in the past couple of days has got me thinking as to how far we can – or will – go in the direction of wireless technology.

When visiting my brother’s new house a few days ago, one of the first things I noticed upon walking into the sitting room (lounge) was the flat screen tv above the fireplace. You can’t miss it. So, of course, I asked him about it and was surprised to see that it was a wireless tv. A little trasmitter sits on top of the dvd player and a receiver in the back of the tv interprets the data and converts it in pictures. No more making holes in the wall to hide wires!

The second observation was when watching a Coldplay video on MTV. The guitarist was using a wireless guitar and was free to roam anywhere on stage without the need to watch where he walked ;)

Maybe these examples are more mainstream in other countries, but they’re not so much here. What’s next for wireless I wonder.
