Wouldn't it be great to no longer have to constantly recharge your cell phone, mp3 player and maybe even your laptop? One startup company, Powercast, might make that dream a reality.
How would this work? Simply, â€œa transmitter plugs into a wall, and a dime-size receiver can be embedded into any low-voltage device. The receiver turns radio waves into DC electricity, recharging the device's batter at a distance of up to 3 feet. The best part is that the technology is â€œcheap enough for just about any company to incorporate into a product.â€
The first company to sign a deal with Powercast is Philips. You should start seeing products using this technology later this year. Other products, such as â€œwireless keyboard and mouse,â€ will follow in 2008.
