IBMDon't you just dream of a time where that nest of wires behind your entertainment rack can just *poof* disappear! Ultrawideband is right around the corner and that might be the solution but IBM might just have a thing or two up their sleeve. They are working on a solution that would be able to transmit data wirelessly at 630 Mbps. This would of course be a short range transmission.

This is not just a theory though. Oh no. Those mad scientists at IBM have a working prototype the size of a dime. They used a silicon germanium to manufacture the chips in order to cram the receiver, the transmitter, and two antennas onto it. This is still a few years away; even if we see it all. Wireless is the way of the feature and with IBM at the helm.
