In practice, existing wireless is more than enough to handle data, outside of some niches. Short range is very limiting and certainly not a plus. This seems like something inspired by Apple's MagSafe but failing to address the main issue.

Wired is about power and data but nowadays it is mostly about power for the bulk of consumers. Wireless needs power delivery to compete with wired, the data side is "fine".

You can find some uses for it but it's not the next big thing, Kiss Connectivity in combination with WattUp (https://www.dialog-semiconductor.com/wireless-charging) could be more interesting. I would buy a thumb drive that integrates the two in a tiny form factor.
