Intel shows off wireless electricity

Reply Thu 28 Aug, 2008 08:13 pm

Electricity was sent wirelessly to a lamp on stage, lighting a 60 watt bulb that uses more power than a typical laptop computer.

Most importantly, the electricity was transmitted without zapping anything or anyone that got between the sending and receiving units.

"The trick with wireless power is not can you do it; it's can you do it safely and efficiently," Intel researcher Josh Smith said in an online video explaining the breakthrough.


I've always wanted wireless power. I hope this time it's viable.

@Robert Gentel,
Nicola Tesla didn't have the safe/efficient part of that one down very well and got run out of Denver for it if what I read is correct.
