This installment of Bloomberg’s Wiring the World series shows a reality where you don’t have to plug your smartphone or laptop into a wall to charge it. Bloomberg’s Ramy Inocencio visits WiTricity, a company that’s making breakthroughs in wireless charging.
The potential of wireless charging created great excitement when it first came to prominence in 2007 when two researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) successfully powered a 60-watt light bulb wirelessly, using two copper coils two metres apart.
This short video animation explains WiTricity technology and how it can be applied in a wide range of applications, including consumer electronics, automotive, medical, military and industrial.
If WiTricity CEO Alex Gruzen gets his way, the company’s tech will soon wind up in your phone, your car and even inside your body. That’s because the Massachusetts-based company deals in magnetic resonance technology, and if those words don’t mean anything to you now, they probably will before long.
Kaynam Hedayat, WiTricity’s VP of Product Management and Marketing, delivers the keynote presentation for EMC Live 2014. Watch the video for an in-depth explanation of resonant energy transfer, an overview of how it can be applied to various markets, and insight into when we can expect it commercially.
In this four-part short video series WiTricity Corporation’s CTO, Morris Kesler, speaks with MIT Industrial Liaison Program about what to expect next from the company’s wireless power and charging technology.
