This is an interesting use of Wi-Fi. I feel a shorter range Wi-Fi would be better off targeting wireless hard disks (remember wireless USB?) and would be on overkill for mouse and keyboard.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
