Ubiquitous Wi-Fi

Ubiquitous Wi-Fi: Imagine a future in which wireless connectivity is everywhere. Wi-Fi using applications and gadgets in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities. In the course of ordinary activities, someone "using" ubiquitous computing engages many computational devices and systems simultaneously, and may not necessarily even be aware that they are doing so.

Wi-Fi connects your computers, printers, refrigerators, home entertainment systems, burglar alarms, and more. But it's not quite here yet: We do have the Nseries range of phones with built-in Wi-Fi but some of these applications are still the province of bleeding-edge people for whom technology is a hobby. These people want the latest and greatest, which is why we have n96 owners flocking to the Nokia Flagship store when the n97s get released. They want to have it first, and are willing to go to great lengths to be the first on their block with the new technology toys.
Bearing today's reality in mind, i found an article that takes a look at the Wi-Fi home of tomorrow from two perspectives:

  • What Wi-Fi applications can you use and enjoy today?
  • A little further out on the curve, how is Wi-Fi likely to shape our lives tomorrow?
  • Wi-Fi and home entertainment systems
  • Wi-Fi in the kitchen
All these questions and more are answered here with a good explanation on wifi gadgets.
