Wireless Electricity, Yes Please!

Posted by Phil on 9/5/09

Talk about wireless electricity has been sputtering around for a while now,  occasionally reaching market, but not nearly as often as it should. So check out Eric Giler at TED presenting on technology that delivers practical wireless power.

Works at a reasonable distance, check. Delivers sufficient power for common device needs, check. Not likely to cook your brain, ovaries, or testicles, check. Efficient replacement for wires, weeeeell sort of check. At 50% it's not great, but hopefully this can be improved upon.

I'm definitely looking forward to parking my electric car over a transmitter-fitted parking space, and putting in an extra couple of quarters to fill up while I'm running errands.
