This sounds neat: The Wi-Fi Alliance is announcing Wi-Fi Direct, a new standard that will let Wi-Fi-enabled gizmos talk directly to each other, without a home network serving as middleman. Applications would include jobs like letting a camera send photos directly to a TV set, no cables required.

We’ll see if it actually takes off. Wireless USB sounded neat, too, but so far has failed to go much of anywhere…
