MacBook Wireless USB Solution For VGA & DVI

MacBook laptops don’t come with VGA out or DVI out connectors for extending one’s video screens to more then the MacBook itself.  Today Wisair announced a solution for just that with their Wireless USB DisplayDock Set.

Wisair’s DisplayDock solution allows Mac users to connect to a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers, via a single wireless link with a single adapter that connects to a USB port on the MacBook.  Since we haven’t seen a big offering to help out MacBook users we expect this to be a big hit with the MacFanBoys.

  • Point to point plug and play USB wireless
  • Universal solution for MacBooks
  • Distance up to 30 feet
  • Doesn’t load over WiFi so your internet USB gadget surfing remains fast
  • Wireless video supports up to 1440 x 1050 screen resolution

No price yet was announced from the Press Release or OEM sites.  Product will be available the first of March. Continue Reading

Wireless USB Connects to iPhone

How would you like to connect wirelessly to your iPhone?  Imagine sharing your photo’s or [soon to be] video with your TV or monitor without a cable?  How about sync your iTunes without the white USB connector, or update contacts, schedules, calendar and more without making a connection.  How about getting real crazy and juicing up your iPhone without a plug?

Well, all of this will be possible with the new Alereon wireless USB technology for the iPhone and those who integrate into their peripheral.

Future enhancements will enable connectivity to HDTVs for displaying photos or videos.

Wireless USB Multi-Media Remote

Wireless USB has gotten some hits for not picking up developers over the past 18 months. Some of the only items we’ve seen are wireless USB hubs with poor performance. Well, maybe a slow data transfer is what’s needed, like that from the AMEX wireless USB multi-media remote.

The AMEX remote is stylish in look, and will control your multi-media system including music, photo, video and DVD titles. The RM-mp1 uses a touch pad mouse, a slick laser pointer, basic nav buttons and includes a wireless USB receiver. I’d say it looks like a cell phone, and with dimensions of just 104x38x12mm in size, it’s the size of one.Source: Akihabara News. Continue Reading

Expect Wireless USB to be Hot in 2008

CES 2008 is a couple weeks old and after poring over the gadget blogs, press releases and manufacturer websites it’s clear Wireless USB or WUSB will be hot in 2008.  For that reason, I thought it would be the right time to revisit:  What is Wireless USB?

WUSB is a high-bandwidth wireless extension for short range communication between computers, devices and gadgets.  The WUSB specification claims a transfer speed equal to USB 2.0 of 480Mbit per second.  Although that has yet to be seen (even with USB 2.0 wired products). The USB Implementors Forum based this wireless technology off the WiMedia Alliance’s Ultra-Wideband or UWB platform.  WUSB will work up to 9 feet away and then slow down to 110Mbit/s with a max range of 30 feet. WUSB works on the 3.1 to 10.6 GHz frequency range and spreads communication over an ultra-wideband of frequencies.  For this reason you will not see wireless interference between WUSB and Wi-Fi or Bluetooth wireless networks. If I have peaked your interest for Wireless USB, check out some other WUSB articles. Continue Reading
