Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943)
“Nikola Tesla, the eccentric - and unbelievably under-rated - genius known as the ‘wild man of electronics’, was without doubt one of the greatest minds in the history of the human race.”
The idea of wireless electricity has been around since the early days of the Tesla coil. But thanks to a group of MIT scientists, "WiTricity" (as these scientists call it) is now one step closer to practical reality.
Demonstrating the ability to power a 60-watt light bulb from a power source seven feet away without wires might not seem like the most impressive of feats, but the technology behind it has massive implications for how we live our tech-filled, power-hungry lives. Imagine a day when your laptop, MP3 or player are constantly charged by power sent through the air via an electromagnetic field.
A Starbucks where you can use the restroom for free, use their Wi Fi for free and get a quick charge for your cell phone all without buying a “venti white chocolate mocha” for $4.00 plus tax.
Splashpower Ltd. is a United Kingdom-based company founded in June 2001. It has been attempting to develop technology for wireless charging of portable devices such as mobile phones, personal digital assistants, mp3 players and cameras. Their system works through electromagnetic induction, adding a free positioning induction loop (at the “SplashPad") to the conventional fix induction loop at the wall plug (used to shift between AC and DC currents). According to the company's claims, rechargeable devices equipped with a small Splash Module are placed upon a mouse pad-sized SplashPad and have their batteries recharged at a normal rate.(Wikipedia)
