Wireless electricity? Wireless electricity!  AUG 06 2014

For the NY Times, Nick Bilton writes about uBeam, Meredith Perry's startup that is working on wireless electricity. Sounds like the company is on track to deliver a product in a couple of years.

Ms. Perry's company, uBeam, announced on Wednesday that it took an early prototype concept of this technology, first developed for Ms. Perry's college innovation competition, and turned it into a fully functional prototype that the company now plans to build for consumers.

"This is the only wireless power system that allows you to be on your phone and moving around a room freely while your device is charging," Ms. Perry said in an interview. "It allows for a Wi-Fi-like experience of charging; with everything else you have to be in close range of a transmitter."

That is some future shit right there. (via @tcarmody)
