Huge difference @GREAT-Terry. WiTricity's solution's selling point is the longer range of energy transmission.

MediaTek struggling in recent times..hope Ralink acquisition and license with WiTricity will definitely help in PC and handset markets especially in connectivity solutions

What is the difference of this wireless charging from the existing solution out there? How small it can achieve? It is good to have wireless charging but with the slim case that all people are chasing after, small size surely is a very important advantage. Whether such technology helps the sales of gadget very much depends on how small this inductive loop and related circuits occupy.

There is a demand. The market seems growing. I also wonder the efficiency. Any more information will help.

Wow. MIT again. This is the future and I think they should buy-out and not just license. There is minimal risk in outright acquisition as the business is a growth one
