Sony shows 'TransferJet' high-speed wireless transfer system Sony has shown off a new wireless data transfer system that requires close proximity of devices, but provides a high data transfer rate to compensate. The TransferJet system requires that equipment be about 3cm apart to achieve speed up to 560Mbps. "Even if the conditions for transmission deteriorate, it will maintain the highest possible wireless connectivity by automatically lowering the data transmission rate," Sony stated.
Sony adds that the new technology promises minimal electromagnetic interference due to the low intensity of the radio waves employed. The 3cm distance might make you think the technology is obsolete at first, but on second thought it has a huge variety of uses. For example, it could be added to mobile phones to allow users to transfer huge amounts of data to and from each other in a short amount of time.

It could also eliminate the need for a USB cable between a computer and a digital camera, or remove the need for you to carry a connection cable around with a video camcorder in order to connect to a TV. As long as both devices are compliant, the system can offer a wireless solution that could make life a little bit easier.

In order to prevent external data leakage, users could register heir electronic products to recognize each other. Such a technology could also be eventually built into portable multimedia players and retail kiosks spread across cities to provide easy purchasing of digital content.

Cool... My external HDD is only a couple inches away from my iMac so it would work well :)

This seems really cool. I'd love to be able to have an actually impressive means of transferring files without cables. I don't care if I have to make the thing practically siamese with another device either.

Just as long as it doesn't make the thing cost too much.

and just you wait. I'm sure hughjars will be on the scene momentarily. Too bad they didn't mention the PS3 in the article or we'd already see a war ;)
