WiFi and USB have both become inexpensive and ubiquitous connectivity solutions, so the idea of exploiting them both at the same time a single device makes sense.

With so many people downloading video content via their PC, IOGEAR
have decided to make the process of getting said content from the study to the lounge room a fuss-free, and more importantly, cable-free affair. The company's Wireless USB Audio/Video Kit unveiled at CES 2009 can stream audio and video content from a PC to a monitor or TV with VGA input up to 30 feet away.
