Researchers at Oregon State University discovered a technology that might help doctors know about the state of your health by continuously, monitoring your body.
It should have provided high-speed, low-power wireless connectivity for homes and offices everywhere. But instead of more products you can shake a stick at, all UltraWideBand has to show for itself to date is a French USB stick you can shake. Dialogue Box explains why
Wireless HD update: Sony drops price on DMX-WL1 Wireless Video Link, In-Stat says 802.11n Wi-Fi will win
The wireless transmission of high-def video from the source to an HDTV is still a bit of a Holy Grail, as technologies like Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI), WirelessHD, and Ultrawideband (UWB) are struggling to gain any traction. One example: Sony has just slashed the price on its DMX-WL1 Wireless Video Link (pictured), which uses WHDI, from $799.
The latest version of the wireless standard has been formally adopted, offering lower data-transfer speeds than had been anticipated
The new and improved Bluetooth 3.0 can hit a top speed of 24Mbps, through its use of the 802.11 radio protocol. But it doesn't include ultrawideband.

The ultrawideband group will shut down and transfer its specifications to industry groups representing spin-off technologies such as Bluetooth 3.0 and Wireless USB
One of the Holy Grails of home theater setups is being able to have all of your equipment connected without a corresponding rat's nest of cables. We've seen a number of previews of technology that will allow for the wireless transmission of HD signals, though some are still in purgatory (like Belkin's FlyWire).

The ultrawideband companies Staccato and Artimi are to merge, although as the resulting company will be known as Staccato Communications it is probably fair enough to say Staccato swallowed Artimi.It's a bit odd to see consolidation in the UWB market this early on in the game, but not that surprising given the current economic climate.

The manufacturer will launch ultrawideband-toting notebooks — probably using Wireless USB — in the EMEA region in the first quarter of 2009
ABI Research says shipments of UWB-enabled devices will grow from virtually nil today, to more than 400 mln in 2013.
Ultrawideband may be disappointing its fans on a number of fronts – late, slow and not particularly exciting, to name just three – but nobody's told Pulse~LINK. This idiosyncratic Californian company has been active in developing UWB since the beginning of the century: unlike virtually everyone else in the business, it's avoided joining the various consortia which have battled away for supremacy in the standardisation race.
According to bearded folkdancer Peter Judge over at Techworld, the Bluetooth SIG has got bored waiting for ultrawideband to turn up and has decided to go to Wi-Fi instead for the next update to its standard.Whether Wi-Fi is a good fit for Bluetooth is a moot point, given the lengths the Blueboys have gone to in the past to explain the many philosophical and practical differences between the standards.
The long-awaited wireless tech can be used in the UK without a licence from Monday, enabling low-power, high-bandwidth home communications
Dell and Lenovo launch notebooks with the new technology, but such products won't be sold in the UK until wireless USB's legalisation in August
Last year we exclusively broke the story that ultrawideband (UWB) is to be legalised in Europe. It all became official in February of this year, and all systems are just about ready to go.
Ofcom is poised to legalise ultrawideband products in the UK by the spring
What, no 4G? Futurologist and Ofcom technologist Professor William Webb says the future of wireless is here already
