Yup, you read right. Wireless electricity has arrived. I’m sure many of you have screamed and yelled due to electrical cords at some point. Hell, I’ve even been blown away across a room a few times in my life due these tangling annoyances. Well there is soon to be no need for them!
We have taken our time to perfect this new method of simplifying our lives, seeing as though Nikola Tesla already managed to achieve this in 1894 whereby he wirelessly lit up single-terminal incandescent lamps in New York City by means of electrodynamic induction aka wireless resonant inductive coupling.
Manufacturers of this new technology have released a device that can send power through the air over a distance of up to a few inches. A magnetic field is created inside the device by a powered coil which in turn induces current to flow to the small secondary coil built into any device that has it. Simply put your phone, camera or laptop on the device and let it charge wirelessly – no more messy wires or wire pulling (really?)
Don’t worry about being frizzled to ashes either, because this technology is “smart”, or so they say! Their built-in coils are driven by integrated circuits which pick up if the device on it is able to receive power or not. So you won’t get a nasty suprise every time you walk passed it.
