A cordless future for electricity?
Electronics such as phones and laptops may start shedding their power cords within a year.
Wireless electricity may soon make tangled power cords a thing of the past.
That's the prediction of Eric Giler, CEO of WiTricity, a company that's able to power light bulbs using wireless electricity that travels several feet from a power socket.
WiTricity's version of wireless electricity -- which converts power into a magnetic field and sends it sailing through the air at a particular frequency -- still needs to be refined a bit, he said, but should be commercially available soon.
Giler, whose company is a spinoff of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology research group, says wireless electricity has the potential to cut the need for power cords and throw-away batteries.
"Five years for now, this will seem completely normal,"
"The biggest effect of wireless power is attacking that huge energy wasting that goes on where people buy disposable batteries
," he said.
