I share tb100's safety concern. What would be the effective SAR rating for this charger?

focusing RF power

I'm a little leary of transmitting focused RF power. On the other hand you could put your burrito on top of your phone so it would receive some of that focused power to heat it up.

On a more serious note, I've always wondered if a tiny, very-low-power device could harvest power from all the RF being broadcast all over the place these days: WiFi at 2.4GHz, 5GHz, all the various cell frequencies, even the old UHF,VHF radio and television.

Certainly it is possible to build a tank circuit to capture some of this power. I'm just wondering if it is enough to do anything with. Maybe you could have a sensor that just collects miscellaneous RF power for a few hours, then it could broadcast its data for a few microseconds.

Who else is targeting this RF approach?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
