I can see a possible future for all desks and workstation areas having this wireless power recharger built in. I would love to have the freedom to run any application, anywhere, on my laptop/handheld without needing to watch the battery life. If it would be retrofitted onto plane drop down trays - that would be just wonderful. Imagine, flying coast to coast using your power hungry laptop on full brightness and not running out of power!

Efficiency is up to 80 percent, and with multiple coils that automatically switch on and off, you don't have to line up the device perfectly to get good wireless power transfers.

Instead of having to carry a different wall wart for each device you want to plug in and recharge, wireless rechargers all use a standard dock that you just lay the device atop.

Inductive charging has been a very hot topic these days. There is no doubt technology has improved substantially. The charging efficient wasn't very good in the old days. What's the charging efficient now?

What is the advantage of this? If you still have to make contact or proximity to the docking station which is plugged in, what does wireless charging bring to the table?

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.
