In the house of the future, wire-free energy transfer could be as easy as wireless internet.

When Katie Hall saw a light-bulb glowing in the middle of a room with no wires attached she was shocked. Looking back, it was a crude experiment, she remembers: a tiny room filled with gigantic copper refrigerator coils — the kind you’d see if you cracked open the back of your freezer. She walked in and out between the coils and the bulb — and still the bulb glowed. (Video)

OLEV bus charged wirelessly by the road

Wireless online electric bus

The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has developed an Online Electric Vehicle (OLEV) bus that receives power wirelessly from electrical cables laid underneath the surface of the street using Shaped Magnetic Field in Resonance (SMFIR) technology. Two of the new buses have just hit the streets in the city of Gumi, South Korea. (Video)

Travel San Francisco to L.A. in 30 minutes with proposed new transportation system

ET3’s Evacuated Tube Transport

For most Bay Area residents in California, commuting is a way of life.  Many people are used to an hour commute each way without traffic. Some people in the Bay Area even commute to Southern California several times a month, spending several hours each way either in the car or fighting through airports. What if there was an alternative to flights and car rides? If it was up to Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the Colorado company ET3, an answer could come sooner than we think.

The Sun erupting in ‘solar tsunami’ which sparked incredible Northern Lights displays across the northern hemisphere in August.

It was the breathtaking solar event that sparked spectacular displays of Northern Lights across much of the northern hemisphere. In August the sun’s surface suddenly erupted and blasted tons of plasma – ionised atoms – into interplanetary space. It took two days for the atoms to travel the 93million miles to Earth.
