Extend HDMI at 1080p/60 Hz up to 10 meters (30 feet) away!
The Wireless for HDMI 60 GHz Extender extends high-quality uncompressed HDMI 1.3 audio/video at resolutions of up to 1080p/60 Hz to any remote display location up to 30 feet away without the hassle of wires. The Wireless for HDMI 60 GHz Extender employs advanced high-frequency radio technology to support the high multi-gigabit data transfer rates of HDMI 1.3 with 8-channel digital audio.

This is a perfect solution in scenarios where traditional cabling cannot be applied. The plug-and-play installation makes it simpler than ever to extend HDMI to another room or to a ceiling projector in a matter of minutes, all without ever having to run cables and drill through walls or ceilings.
How It Works
The Wireless for HDMI 60 GHz Extender system uses a pair of Sender and Receiver units. The HDMI source is attached to the HDMI input on the Sender unit. The Receiver unit is attached to an HDMI-compliant display in the desired viewing area. The Sender and Receiver are arranged in a line-of-sight orientation with respect to each other and without obstructions in the way of the radio signal path. The Sender and Receiver are powered on and put into pairing mode using their dedicated reset buttons. Within a few seconds, the units find each other and wireless radio pairing mode commences. A sharp and vibrant high-definition picture emerges on the remote extended HDMI-compliant display as AV signal extension completes.

During setup and operation, 4 LED Indicators on the front of the Sender and Receiver units will illuminate to indicate operational states such as power status, pairing activity, strength of the wireless signal, and signal blockage.

Inflatable Device Stops the Bleeding

A fast, efficient balloon-based system could save lives on the street and battlefield.

Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of death on the battlefield, and according to military medical experts, it accounts for 80 percent of otherwise preventable deaths. One problem is that there are no effective treatments for deep, penetrating wounds, which are too severe for gauze packing and are in areas where a tourniquet cannot be applied. To stop life-threatening bleeding in such instances, Maynard Ramsey, the chief executive officer and chief technology officer at CardioCommand, a Tampa, FL-based medical device company, has developed a balloon-based system that can be inserted into a wound and inflated in less than 90 seconds.
