These days we take wireless network connections on our mobile devices for granted but now Intel is promising to take wire-free computing to a whole new level.
How much time have you wasted over the years searching for the right power adapter or fiddling with video leads trying to establish a connection between your laptop and a projector? Intel’s vision is to eradicate this kind of cabling conundrum from our lives by enhancing wireless charging solutions and data transfer capabilities.

The company has confirmed that its innovations will be based around WiGig. This wireless data transfer technology, which is much faster than WiFi, is now progressing very quickly and Intel plans to use it to connect wireless keyboards and mice to laptop computers. But Intel also wants to do away with chargers and power packs by developing wireless charging solutions for mobile devices.
In a blog post, Intel stated: “We’re living in an age of ubiquitous wireless connectivity. With improvements to cellular technology, global navigation systems, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, we’re able to work smarter and communicate faster. The next logical step in the progression of wireless technology is to further untangle users and completely change the computing landscape.”
By eliminating obstacles and stress barriers caused by inefficient wired technologies, we’re enabling you to work smarter and spend more time doing what you love – Intel
The future goes something like this. As you enter your office, your laptop will use proximity-based peripheral syncing to automatically connect to your wireless monitor or projector. You’ll enjoy an HD streaming experience without the cables and without the hassle.
But it doesn’t stop at display devices. Intel is also developing hardware that enables your devices to charge wirelessly via magnetic resonance. This innovation promises to free users from that endless hunt for the right adapter, whilst enabling multiple devices to charge simultaneously.
