Consumer Electronics Show is a tech smorgasbord. Here are nine products that attest to the show's overwhelming variety.
Wilocity's 60-GHz multi-gigabit wireless chipsets are advertised as offering a tenfold increase in speed relative to legacy Wi-Fi connections. In November, the company announced that it had partnered with Qualcomm
to supply these WiGig-enabled components for Dell's Latitude 6430u
, and it's a good bet that additional computers will showcase the tech at CES.
Compatible with millions of existing Wi-Fi products in the 2.4-GHz or 5-GHz bands, these chips can detect which band will offer the best performance and automatically connect. Don't get lost in dreams of ultra-charged wireless browsing just yet, though; WiGig is most effective over relatively short distances. While that might not mean screaming download speeds as you browse your Ultrabook at the local cafe, it does mean that many of the peripherals that are physically connected to your computer can now connect without cables.
