New Technology Might Put a Stop to the Power Cord

A New company that goes by the name WiTricity has recently developed and has been testing a new technology that will allow customers to to charge devices up to 7 feet away when paired with a receiver. They have been testing the product for a while and are already able to charge common consumer products such as smartphones and televisions. The case that they have created for smart phones has the ability to transfer power at a rate that is twice the rate of the usual 5-watt smartphone chargers, and 7 feet would make that old cable of yours that barely reaches your bed a thing of the past. Check out this TED Talk to see it in action and a brief explanation of how it works. Let us know what you think!
