Wireless USB never really took off, despite a lot of effort being put into making seemingly pointless products, but now accessory company Good Way Technology has come up with a potentially cunning use for it. 

The company has created what it calls a Wireless USB HDMI Dock, which we found skulking at the back of a Taiwanese trade fair. It's a two-part solution, a dongle that you install in your notebook or PC and a small unit that you connect to your TV via an HDMI cable.

This setup then turns your TV into a wirelessly connected display for your computer. Pretty clever, especially as it allows you to stream 720p video content to your TV with audio. The caveats being its 10-metre range and that you can only use it with Windows.

In a way, this is similar to Intel’s WiDi technology which was announced earlier this year, but it will work with any notebook, rather than the limited option of WiDi-enabled PCs.

You'll have to be eagle-eyed to spot one though, and we advise scouring import websites and accessory suppliers, as Good Way doesn’t appear to sell products under its own name.

Let us know if you spot something similar...
