Like many people I'm often annoyed by ugly cable clutter, especially when it's long distance. In my opinion it would be ideal if cables could be eliminated altogether, so that you'd just have two corresponding plugs without the cable, which you plugin at either end and transmit their information wirelessly.
Maybe that would be a little futuristic for now, but what about transporting data over a wireless computer network (or two paired bluetooth transmitters)? That's perfectly possible, and all you'd need is a little box that can convert data to a format that can be transmitted over a wireless network, and a box that converts it back to the appropriate format at the other end. Over time this technology would surely be miniaturized until it fits in a plug. (you could use this for HDMI, audio or other information for example)
Why doesn't this technology exist already? Am I overlooking something, or are there some difficulties with it that have to be solved first?
