We're pretty excited about WiGig's miraculous wireless transmission rates and Panasonic's now in the process of jamming the functionality into SD cards set to arrive next year. It's now got a working prototype and DigInfo's managed to grab a brief video demo (embedded below) showcasing the tech. Both photos and videos can be effortlessly pinged from a tablet (housing the aforementioned memory card) to compatible in-car displays. We're told that those heady transfer speeds are more than capable of handling a whole DVD of video content in under a minute, although the range of the transmission remains between one to three meters. We may be willing to cope with that limitation -- especially if these multi-gigabit speeds still make it across to future phones.
