Intel "A laptop with Light Peak built-in was shown off during Kahn's speech, where a single cable was used simultaneously to transmit Blu-ray video, a feed from a high-definition camera and a duplication of the laptop's display onto another screen. What's more, the Light Peak cable was plugged into the laptop through a tweaked USB 3.0 port with components added to receive the optical signal while still being able to accept normal USB 3.0 devices.

One high speed universal interface that hopefully will replace all others. The only question is when it will become mainstream?

Probably as soon as Intel starts pushing it. Intel has a lot of sway with the hardware manufacture and is a large hardware manufacturer. Plus this is a fairly nifty standard that has a lot of value. As long as the costs aren't too high I would not be surprised if this becomes ubiquitous on new PC within a couple years of it commercial release.
