Thanks to Disney, wireless power transfer is closer than ever!
Disney, the company you know and love for giving you talking cars, princesses, and a better childhood, has developed a new technology, to create a room that'll charge your smartphone wirelessly.
Researchers at Disney found a way to wirelessly charge up to 320 devices in a room. The metod currently requires metal walls, but refinements could lower that to a layer of conductive paint.
“This new innovative method will make it possible for electrical power to become as ubiquitous as WiFi," Alanson Sample, associate lab director & principal research scientist at Disney Research, told Phys.org. "This in turn could enable new applications for robots and other small mobile devices by eliminating the need to replace batteries and wires for charging."
Now wouldn’t that be convenient?
