Intel is moving to a wireless world

Formerly, when we spoke of the wireless capabilities for tablets, laptops or PCs, you could not imagine a connection to the Internet or to a home network (or business) without an Ethernet cable.

These days, there have been many devices marketed with a screen wireless technology allows you to connect to a TV or monitor without cable. Wireless refills are also gaining ground. And of course, you can connect a keyboard, mouse, or even a printer via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity.

If you believe the various Intel clichés , it will not be long before you can throw your power cable, HDMI cable, and all your USB cables.

The problem with some of these wireless technologies right now, is the fact that there are competing standards. Want to charge your smartphone wirelessly? You’ll need to know if you need a Qi charger, Rezence charger, or something else.

Want to connect a monitor without having to connect a cable? To do this, your monitor will need to support various technologies, such as Miracast, Intel Wireless Display (WiDi), or any other protocol.

But Intel is as likely as anyone to help work on those little things. The company dominates the era of processors for laptops, and designs and guidelines affecting much of Intel processors.

You will always know that there is a ton of thin and light notebooks computers on the market these days? For this, we can thank Intel for work “ultrabooks” there a few years. Of course, even if the ultrabooks have not managed to capture the market share of 40% as Intel hoped, the category still strongly influenced PC makers. Indeed, laptops are equipped with AMD processors, hard drives and other features that prevent them from being qualified as ultrabooks, they are still thinner and more portable these days.

So when Intel talks about “developing wireless docks” capable of transferring data comparable to that of USB 3.0 speeds and offer a screen-up connection, it is worthwhile to pay attention . The company also works with charging technology magnetic resonance to facilitate the supply of wireless devices.

In other words, do not be surprised if these features appear to be standard in laptops in the future.

Intel has recently put together a video that shows how wireless technology can facilitate the most basic things using existing technologies and future such as facial recognition to unlock your device, charge your devices while they are resting on a table, or transfer data by placing it near another item, enter text using voice commands to connect to a projector without the need to connect a cable, and more.

All is not quite wireless … since you’ll still need to connect your wireless charger . And I’m still not entirely convinced of the concept on the concept of wireless charging is generally slower and less effective than connecting with a power cable for your device. But perhaps in the future this gap will be just a bad memory.
