Direct Wireless Connectivity Of Up To 12 Gigabits Per Second

Scientists in Australia have developed a new approach to wireless networking that allows a DVD quality movie file to be transferred from one machine to another in less than a second. Who here figures that this technology will somehow be acquired by the military? Feel free to comment below...

I think the military already has things like that but on a smaller scale (Hams dad holds the patent on something similar actually) for radio signals and stuff to avoid tracing. I heard someone talking about wireless electricity on the radio the other day

That is interesting but I think a long way off considering that these "areas" of fiber optics. Also this is in the microwave range and I would assume will "fry" people.

I dunno frying necessarily; phone companies for one already use microwave transmission to send calls over long distances where there's no cable laid. It's those really big towers covered with half-sphere looking things...

An interesting technology to say the least; I think the next couple decades will see some pretty significant breakthroughs in a lot of fields, communications being one of them.

I know that microwaves are used for communications, but I doubt they would be allowed to install the towers so that the beam passed close to houses.

People have been working on a feasable means of wireless electricity for ages. It's already been done, but it's near impossible to harness and use without causing damage to people

It is also highly inefficient and becomes more so as the distance is increased.

Well they do have N-Cells and flux capacitors working off dilythium.
