60GHz? doesnt that mean itll have a really hard time penetrating walls?
If yes, then this is going to fail, just like wimax... sounds like this is wimax2?

This is not meant to compete with normal range wireless protocols.

Imagine a scenario where you have a mobile HDD, you place it on your desk and instead of needing to plug in the USB/eSATA/Thunderbolt. The fact that it wont penetrate the walls is actually a good thing, would you want interference from gear in the next room for this scope?
There are quite a lot of situations where you'd want a super high bandwidth, short range only, wireless protocol.

As a side note, you wont be seeing any multi Gbit wireless tech that has high range any time soon, so sorry... Unless there's a major leap forward in quantum entanglement applied sciences;) Till then I'm afraid that wired will always be better than wireless.
