Futurist Friday: Wireless Charging 8


This new feature will establish me as a futurist, one who extrapolates from current trends and practices and then leaps with abandon to postulate what will be.

San Deigo Convention CenterThere are already technologies that allow for charging devices without the need of cords, but in the future our electronic devices will be able to draw their charge from the air, just as today with are able to have wireless internet access. There will be “charge points” and entire charging networks established such that in many cities and towns one will need no cords, either for connection to the nets or to power devices.

UPDATE: The MIT project that Mike referred to in the comments can be found here. It is accompanied by photo:
