We Ask for Cheap 60 GHz — and Get It

I’m impressed. We here at GigaOM complain that the world needs a cheap, silicon-based 60 GHz chip to make wireless HD a reality, and scientists at Australia’s Melbourne University labs oblige. Others, such as Vubiq and SiBeam, are also trying. The Australian chip is tiny (5mm a side), relatively cheap (less than $10) and can transmit data about 10 meters. That may not wirelessly stream an HD movie across the living room of an American McMansion, but we’re getting close.
