This IC should also include BlueTooth functionality to communicates with device being charged. This way it can be made more efficient and also helps consumer of different status.

This is revolutionary chip, just wondering if this is first of kind chip or do we have this chip available already from other manufacturers ?

What is the range over which such wireless transfer can happen without excessive power loss to the environment? and what happens when there is intermittent interference between the charged and the charging stations?

Why not just modulate data onto the AC?

You can very easily integrate a couple of IC´s into a product. One for Bluetooth and one for the wireless power management. Perhaps integrating both under a single chip would result in noise problems.

This is a chip that Nicola Tesla would´ve loved. He wanted to distribute energy through air. Wirelessly. Perhaps he was the first "Open source" advocate. Aren´t we seeing too much wireless lately? Anyone saw Jhony Mnemonic? Lucky for the business that RF radiation hasn´t been proved to harm our bodies.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
