OnLive Developer Brings DIDO, Claims to Fix Wireless Issues

OnLive’s developer has claimed to have come up with a master plan that would help remove all sorts of reception problems with wireless connections.

According to Venture Beat (opens in new tab), Steve Perlman, the man behind Microsoft's WebTV and cloud-based video gaming firm OnLive has distributed his plan on papers to media persons explaining them the intricate details of the new technology, which he has named DIDO. Perlman, in the plan, has revealed his vision to use cloud-based technologies even while sitting in an airplane.

When OnLive servers are co-located with DIDO servers, there is unprecedented low latency, to the point where remote-hosted OnLive gaming and computing is lower latency than the same games and applications running on a local device. We believe DIDO wireless will completely transform the world," Perlman wrote on the paper.

With a detailed design, Perlman claimed that his plan was no longer unattainable and could be achieved with less complex WiFi system. An amazing discovery, Perlman describes it as a cloud wireless system that is based on Shannon’s law of Physics.

Technical details have been offered by the team that also consists of Antonio Forenza, senior technologist at Rearden based in Palo Alto, California on the white paper.
