Intel MIDs could amplify mobile experience through wireless remote displays

Intel_mid_monitorIn answer to his own question about whether Intel Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) will "end up being too small (or too large) to be the next big thing," Vic Lortz, the company’s Communications Technology Lab senior architect, asks us to "imagine if digital TVs included a wireless display feature (either integrated or through an external adapter) so that a MID could easily use that large display instead of or in addition to the integrated screen of the MID."

Although keenly aware of the amount of work that would be required for wireless remote display technology to be simple enough for the "non-geniuses of the world" to be able to use it, Lortz reveals that Intel is "working on this and other similar problems" and will include its successes in next-gen MIDs and notebooks.

I’m sure the breakthrough will be more exciting than the wireless equivalent of a VGA-out cable (isn’t that what it sounds like?), but I don’t think the success of the MID is riding on it. Do you?
