Eric Giler demos Wireless Electricity

"Eric Giler wants to untangle our wired lives with cable-free electric power. Here, he covers what this sci-fi tech offers, and demos MIT's breakthrough version, WiTricity,  a near-to-market invention that may soon recharge your cell phone, car, pacemaker."

"The technology at the core of WiTricity's approach is called magnetic coupled resonance, which can provoke an energetic response at a distance between two coils, one powered, the other not. If the two coils are correctly tuned to one another, energy flows from the connected one (installed, say, on the ceiling of a room) into the other (inside, say, your laptop). Several companies are already planning to add it to their phones, cameras, TVs and other devices."

This profound technological breakthrough is completely safe since it works within a magnetic field, allowing power to be transmitted through the air. The WiTricity product will do away with our reliance on ecologically unsafe batteries and millions of miles of copper cabling.
