    It's almost frightening how quickly technology advances sometimes. Here's a case in point: a couple of times last year, we did a story on newer more advanced wireless tech called, Advanced LTE. With Advanced LTE currently in testing we have seen that within the next couple of years we could see wireless data connections that hit 600-900 Mbps. To put it in perspective, that is about 15-20 times faster than our current fastest speeds on 4G LTE. However, a new breakthrough in wireless technology has just been achieved by a team of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh that could make even those speeds obsolete in a very short time. Hrvoje Petek, a physics and chemistry professor at the University of Pittsburgh in charge of the research has recently had a breakthrough in which wireless internet bandwidth could be 1,000 times faster than current 4G LTE!

    Current technology transmits data in the gigahertz frequency; however Petek's team has been able to theoretically transfer information in the terahertz frequency of the electromagnetic spectrum. Here's a quote from the BGR article with some more details,

    There's an interesting bit of information on the fringe of the story that is even more mind-boggling. Supposedly, Petek and his team expected to hit the 15.6 THz in their experiments, using just traditional silicon; however, the team is actually aiming much higher than that by studying coherent oscillation of electrons. They believe that they will eventually be able to achieve wireless spectrum speeds in the petahertz frequency range by harnessing "light-matter interactions". With the right materials, they could leap-frog this new breakthrough and achieve speeds 1,000 times faster than their newest breakthrough! If you are doing the simple math, this means that it is possible within our lifetime, we will see internet data speeds 1 Million times faster than our current tech. Hmmm... Speculate on this. The philosophical potentialities are endless!

    But how much is it going to cost and what are the caps on the plans? Oops, I just down loaded every movie and tv show ever made in 2 seconds... this is going to be a big bill(ion).

    :D

    If you downloaded already all the movies and TV shows in2 second, whatever the cost is only one time cost,after that you can go back to 4g! :)

    So you have billions of $ to pay for all that data? In that case let me introduce myself... I'm JP nice to meet you ;)

    Don't know the story, but that's my kind of guy. :)

    Bikes as in, bicycles - not Oil Burners, I hope?

    Got a little collection myself, I love the pure lines and quality of Classic sports bikes. And I am into Touring (by bicycle) as well. ;)

    this all sounds good, but a true revolution will happen when wireless electricity will be invented!

    I'm sure they're working on it, they've already got those wireless charging pads.

    Oooh, I see. A lot easier to travel around with oil power. :)

    Tesla is rumoured to have done some work in the wireless power transmission. Very expensive and complicated work.

    That's for sure. I've been to London & Windsor on my bike, have you pedaled yours to Chicago lately?:rolleyes:

    He did indeed. That was his last major project before he died. JP Morgan sponsored a lot of his work but withdrew sponsorship from this project so Tesla was never able to complete it.

    A few theories exist why the funding was withdrawn, from the idea that JP Morgan didn't see any money in it, to the possible fact that this invention would compromise JP Morgan's large investments into existing electricity grids & copper production.

    Whats amazing is that this took place a 100 years ago and still nobody has been able to get close to Tesla's creations...talk about a man ahead of his time!
