5 New Technologies That Will Change Everything

Postby sunnyd » Mon Oct 26, 2009 9:39 pm

Much of this has been discussed in other threads, but this article kind of sums it all up.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/173778/5_new_technologies_that_will_change_everything.html

By Glenn Fleishman, PC World:
3D TV, HTML5, video over Wi-Fi, superfast USB, and mobile "augmented reality" will emerge as breakthrough technologies in the next few years. Here's a preview of what they do and how they work.

The article has some very interesting descriptions.

USB may be one of the least-sexy technologies built into present-day computers and mobile devices, but speed it up tenfold, and it begins to sizzle.

They don't seem to mention what the most-sexy technology would be.

Doesn't the nvidia 3d vision count as a 3d display with the exception of the glasses? USB 3.0 is being tested but even better is Intel Light Peak. I got video over WiFi, its called a wireless N network and I love my Airport Extreme for being able to host 2 different SSIDs off the 2 bands (2.4 & 5GHz). Firefox 3.5 has HTML5 doesn't it with the OGG native playback too? Augmented reality don't make sense to me and lets hope the successor of 802.11N can penetrate walls and reach distances that WiMax can reach.

Actually it just supports the new video and audio tags which are part of HTML5. Full HTML 5 support won't be available till Firefox 3.6 or more likely 3.7 is released.

I have video over wifi as well. It's called a WRT54GL with an XBox360, a laptop, and a PS3 being setup as media extenders/servers :)
