Mercedes looking into high definition

Mercedes looking into high definition Dubbed as a "first of its kind presentation", collaborators WiMedia and DaimlerChrysler Research plan on displaying a gussied up Mercedes-Benz R500 SUV at CES next week. Armed with high definition LCD displays in the headrests, they plan on showing some of the merits of the Ultrawideband (UWB) USB technology created by Intel and Alereon.
Capable of transmitting a claimed 480Mbps of HD data, the USB device seems well equipped to properly transmit high definition clarity to displays via a mobile device. Which mobile device they will use to house the HD content has yet to be reveiled, but it serves as an interesting time in the long standing quest to further distract people from paying attention to the road in front of them.

lol Mercedes has always been the creator of new standards in cars. (Watch a certain episode of Top Gear and you'll understand what I mean). Very soon rivals are going to be doing this.
