Bigstream offers ad hoc wireless streaming for your iOS device and iPod
Need to give a presentation but don't want to futz with the vagaries of getting on the local network wherever you land? Want to stream music in a strange place from your iPod nano? Want to play games on your TV from your iPad while controlling from your iPhone without the VGA-out cable adapter and separate audio cable? Bigstream is coming out with a rechargeable adapter to do all of this and more, although it'll only be streaming a somewhat lower-res video than VGA (it's the old RCA composite output, apparently to help reduce latency for video and gaming). Still, it seems pretty neat.
Due to be sold via PCD in about a month, the device is listed on Bigstream's site for $99 but will be $129 MSRP. Depending on your device it'll support photos, music, Netflix, YouTube, games and more, so check the compatibility page for details. We took at look at CES, and now you can take a look at the demo in the video above. This probably isn't for everyone, but if you're a traveling salesman doing a lot of presentations and you want a fast setup, I think this will fit the bill nicely.
