Fujitsu, the originator of Japanese computing, offered up another innovation at Germanyâ€™s ongoing CeBIT expo today: arguably the worldâ€™s first completely wireless desktop display.
Wireless USB generates the images from your computer while SUPA, a new technology, provides the power to the monitor. Though cords arenâ€™t required, youâ€™ll be forced to throw down on an expensive-ass SUPA terminal, a small transmitter unit that sends power across a tabletop. In turn, power cuts off if the monitor is lifted a few inches off of the table.
Logistically, itâ€™s a bit complicated. Yet, the underlying concept is intriguing to say the very, very least. And as Engadget's video of the prototype (shown above) proves, Fujitsu is still ironing out the many kinks. — Devin Chanda[Engadget]
