Wireless electronics within a year?

The bold, optimistic CEO of WiTricity (a company specializing in wireless power transmission) predicts "electronics such as phones and laptops may start shedding their power cords within a year." (CNN)

Really?

"Five years from now, this will seem completely normal."

[More emphasis] Really?

CNN reminds us the promise of wireless electricity has been around for more than one hundred years. "Nikola Tesla started toying with the ability to send electricity through the air in the 1890s."

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
