Look out, here comes Wireless USB

CES is playing host to a number of devices that utilize Wireless USB.  It’s likely you’re already familiar with USB and know what wireless means, so you’ve probably already guessed what Wireless USB holds in store for you.

According to Jeff Ravencraft of Intel, “It looks and feels like wired USB, only it’s wireless.”  That truly sums it up.  Devices such as wireless hard drives, speakers, displays, docks – you name it, and if it uses USB, it could very well become wireless someday thanks to Wireless USB.

Wireless USB transfers data three meters away at 480 megabits per second, which is about the same as wired USB now.  Over 130 products have been certified for Wireless USB so far, with more certain to follow.
