A real-life “Broadcast Energy Transmitter”?

G.I. Joe: The Movie (1987)

I love a good science/technology article and so you can imagine my surprise when I stumbled across this piece on CNN.com today.

Eric Giller, CEO of WiTricity, claims that wireless transfer of electricity will be commercially available within a year.  Wireless electricity may free portable devices such as laptops and phone from power cord chargers, changing forever how these devices are used.

“Five years from now, this will seem completely normal,” he said.

“The biggest effect of wireless power is attacking that huge energy wasting that goes on where people buy disposable batteries.”

All I’m saying is that someone should check the Himalayas now for a field of giant spores and some blue-skinned humanoids.
