It could mean the end of the daily hunt for power cables. Korean researchers have unveiled an experimental wireless recharging system that could top up the mobile of everyone in the office wirelessly. The system can transmit power up to 5 metres, and charge up to 40 phones at a time - and is even powerful enough to power a TV.

“Mr Tesla please pick up the nearest white courtesy phone.”
At this stage in America, I worry more that the intention of this product is to provide another eavesdropping vector.
Health Effects? Nah...I love being irradiated.
This is one pic I found, that's him in the middle...
Don't have to wash that way.
I read an article about this a few years ago that mentioned that it sorta works off the concept of resonating frequency, but they must limit the range because once the power goes a certain distance, anything that picks it up interprets it as power. i.e. 120 volts broadcast over, say 30 feet will electrocute anyone in that vicinity. But if you are closer it passes through you, harmless.
Well, tinfoil is not the answer to that one, lol.
Why not make this on a much more localized scale, like inches or a fraction of an inch? I have an electric toothbrush that does this. I've long wished my phone had a similar simple cradle (ahem, maybe even standardized!) that I could set it in and charge it wirelessly. Yes I know there are cradles now, but they require actually plugging into a fixed connector. I think I saw an add-on for iPhones once that did this.
Funny. I’ve wondered the exact same thing (cradle).
Just like cell phones, this will cause 100 percent of the population to die of brain cancer!!! /s
I might be concerned about my wife with one shoulder and two knee replacements. She’s high enough energy as it is, doesn’t need any more charging.
Democrats are safe.
They may die from something else, but brain cancer is an impossibility for them.
Of course it will take some getting used to, having my living room look like a farm market.
