See WiFi Direct In Action

WiFi Direct provides devices with the ability to transfer files and other information between each other using WiFi radio transmissions without having to be connected to a WiFi network. One way that you might use WiFi Direct is to stream a movie from a notebook computer to a TV, or display pictures on a smartphone to a TV.

If you have used Bluetooth to transfer files between a smartphone and a PC, you have an idea of how WiFi direct work, except that WiFi Direct will require less configuration and will be faster. Kevin Tofel has recorded a video of a demonstration of WiFi Direct at the Consumer Electronics show, which you can watch to see how the capability works.
