Microsoft’s Virtual WiFi and Magic Wand

Microsoft’s latest piece of evil wizardry comes in the form of virtual wifi and magic wands.

This concept lets one piece of WiFi hardware be represented in Windows as two separate adapters, meaning you can connect to two hotspots simultaneously if you like, or turn your virtual device into an access point that others can connect to. This feature is available in the latest RC of Windows 7, however there are no drivers that currently support it.

And lastly, Microsoft claims Azeroth, and tries to patent the Magic Wand. To simply say, they want their own WiiMote. The [wand’s] architecture can utilize one or more sensor from a collection of sensors to determine an orientation or gesture in connection with the wand, and can further issue an instruction to update a state of an environmental component based upon the orientation.magicballmer.jpgPicture from Gizmodo, thought it was pretty funny.
