Alternative ways to supply power for devices is always something I am looking at. My friend, Saar Avigour from Pocket PC Freak had a piece up on his site that really intrigued me. Although I was unable to read the text (non-English), the pictures were enough to peak my interest. His article deals with a technology that brings wireless electricity to surfaces for easy charging of your devices WITHOUT wires.
It is designed to replace the need to access multiple electrical sockets with the flexibility and freedom of wireless power for real-time powering and charging of electronic devices of almost any kind in almost any environment. Powermat technology revolutionizes the way energy is consumed in the every day course of interaction with our environment.
