"Superlens" quite interesting
prabhakar_deosthali   1/17/2014 6:02:03 AM
The concept of the 'Superlens'  for wireless power transfer is quite interesting. This could be very useful for charging of electrical vehicles as they can be charged while on the move by the proximity magnetic field .

I think a similar approach has been used for the driver less electric vehicle , I saw , on some other blog .

Agreed, a technology that can boost the wireless transfer of power involves a whole range of possibilities. We shall see how this plays out and where it ends up being used.

It's a clever design and looks like it lends itself quite well to their next enhancement -- the addition of dynamic tuning. If implemented in a smaller & thinner form factor, this approach could also do wonders for wireless charging pads for mobile devices.

Meta-material performance is disappointing
Chris Henrikson   1/17/2014 9:07:24 PM
I read the paper.  The peak simulated power transfer efficiency is 6% at about 14 cm.  If there were no fancy metamaterials, it would achieve 6% efficiency at 10 cm, and the efficiency is much higher at smaller distances.

I don't see it being more than a laboratory curiosity for a long while. Parts Search

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
