    Power Over Wireless Cell Phones?

    Hi,

    Im just wondering if anyone as heard of 'Power Over Wireless' the transfer of electricity to things such as cell phones without a cable. Apparently also a cell phone company has taken out a patent for a device that switches the cell phone on when it detects a wireless signal and powers itself. So you dont waste battery power but when you find the wireless power it charges itself - pretty cool.

    this was in the news just last week i think. its fairly crap at the min, but i suppsoe has potential, although you do have to ask, if mobiles and wifi are bad for your health, what would this do to you?

    This has been around for a while but it now looks like it may become a reality.

    Bit of info for those not aware of 'Power over wireless'
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6129460.stm

    Who knows, maybe one day I can get rid of all the chargers that every device comes with these days. How come they all seem to be different? Why can't device manufacturers settle on one of a number of 'standard' chargers that we could use between devices? I must have around 15 different chargers for various devices.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    It is a Tesla invention isnt it?

    Not a good idea for populated area's.

    It is bad enough already.

    Sounds a bit suspicious that strong EMR is harmful to animals, but 'not' to humans.
