The ability to use wireless electricity to charge your gadgets could get many of you excited. Having this technology would mean you would never have to plug anything in again to a wall as the power would be supplied over the air. Wireless Electricity is not new, but past attempts see a lot of power that is lost through the air. Can Intel make a change to this? It seems like they are heading in the right direction.
Wireless Electricity achieves 75% efficiency over two feet
Intel have demonstrated their latest attempt by creating two metal arrays that connect to an amp. With resonance the electricity is transferred making devices on the other end receive power. The test that Intel ran was running 60 watts of power which made a jump of 2 feet while retaining 75% efficiency. This is so far the best attempt at wireless electricity tests.
Although the technology is not ready yet, it certainly is a step in the right direction and one I welcome as I am fed up of the site of cables.
