Power Over Wireless

Hi Im new here,

Im just wondering if anyone as heard of 'Power Over Wireless' the transfer of electricity to things such as cell phones without a cable. It works similar to charging the battery of an electric toothbrush.

Anyone heard of it?

I know there are some non-contact devices where power is transferred a short distance. I don't know of the practicality of "power over wireless"

AFAIK the electric toothbrush is recharged from contacts in a charger. I do not know of any "self-charging" toothbrush.

I briefly heard something on the radio this weekend about auto manufacturers planning on adding it as a feature in a few years.

Here's a related article or two

Just plug your wireless modem into the hamster wheel and your computer will run for about 20 minutes without a charge. You'll either need steroids or more hamsters for extended use.

I've noticed you've posted this same question in a vast number of forums. What exactly are you wanting to find out?

I heard about it.
It was in the CES show recently and I think Cnet had an article on it.

Thanks for noticing that.

He is indeed a spammer. He is building a website promoting that technology and trying to sell associated items.
