I’m still in awe after reading the latest news about xMax, the technology that I predict will be even more famous than Wi-Fi is today.
Technical aspects aside, the consequences of this little innovation goes way beyond the mere wireless transmission of data. The possibilities are really endless. I can easily imagine loads of xMax â€œdotsâ€ scattered around the world powered by nothing more than a tiny battery (or even solar power), forming the worldâ€™s largest ISP.
It can also be used to unleash the true power of personal networking. Everyone, every home, every dog, connected through a mesh of wireless access points, possible only due to the super-low power consumption (it is predicted that at 2Mbits a wireless xMax can run for years on a watches battery!).
Your watch will have one, so will your computer mouse, your TV, fridge, headphones, iPod, PDA, wallet, heck even your gramma!
A true revolution is on its way, and with commercial products ready as soon as next year, thereâ€™s nothing to stop it! (expect the FCC and other regulators)Computing, Ideas
