WiPower is working with the University of Florida on a new wireless power technology. The university says the system goes beyond commercialization and actually "exceeds the efficiency of most corded chargers." They said the system can achieve a 68% efficiency, but they are confident that number will reach 80%. In a few more months they plan to demonstrate proof that they cxan charge a laptop computer solely through wireless power.
Implications - This would be an ideal solution for citizens who travel a lot and are not in the vicinity of a power outlet, or for students who use their devices in classrooms. This innovative idea is sure to improve the lives of many.
