Wireless Charging Coming Soon via WiTricity?
The man you can see below is WiTricity Corp. CEO Eric Giler, who has recently talked to BBC about the future of power and wireless charging. He also mentions a new way to power electric cars in the video below, but it’s the handset charging we’re really interested in:
Giler claims that in 12 to 18 months, consumers will be able to buy a wireless phone charger and we don’t mean Palm Pre’s accessory, but a truly wireless solution, no contact involved. Too bad that WiTricity’s CEO didn’t mention any price for his new gadget/tech, although we might be seeing an affordable solution after all.
Expect it to hit the market in 2010, if everything goes as planned!
