Smart speakers have proved to be incredibly helpful to cord cutters, but the Wi-Charge aims to further the cause of cord cutters but allowing wireless charging via infrared light. The device is already received a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree and introduces technology that borders on the science-fiction. The implementation of the Wi-Charge could drastically change how smart speakers function in a home as placement is no longer bound by plugs and sockets.
While the Wi-Charge is an incredibly impressive piece of tech, the endgame of its manufacturer is something even more innovative. The Tel Aviv-based company is currently looking for partners who would be willing to integrate the receivers and transmitters into third-party devices. This is exemplified in the companies 'Powered by Wi-Charge OEM Program,' which is solely focused on helping select equipment manufacturers to bring wirelessly charged products to market.
