Considering that most wireless devices need to be powered, it makes sense to invest in an emerging technology that provides wireless power. I could see many applications: cellphone/tablet/car charging on major highways (for a fee of course). Perhaps, in the conference rooms at companies and universities/colleges there would be power available for those in attendance. Some interesting possibilities to think about..

Well, Qualcomm isn't the only high -tech firm diversifying to energy sector. I think, its wireless portfolio will boost HaloIPT.

Moving towards energy industry seems very ambitious. A very long term plan is necessary so I have excited to see the commitment from Qualcomm. This company is moving so fast! From a small company selling IP, to a chip vendor and now moving towards a whole new system level in another industry. Good luck!

I'll just do some surfing on my Mirasol enabled tablet to see how successful they've been outside their area of core competency... or perhaps see if there is some relevant coverage on Flo TV.

This is a little strange considering that Qualcomm is a communications company and not a power company. What will qualcomm be up to now?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
