The USB to VGA Adapter Kit from CablesToGo uses Ultra-Wide Band technology to transmit VGA video over wirelessly over USB to a VGA out port to a television. You can connect a PC to one end and then transmit the 720p video to a television up to 30 feet away.
No pricing, it seems, but makes a nice addition to the wireless USB to VGA Pantheon currently populated by IOGEAR.
