Since researchers from the MIT first announced that they had a working prototype of a wireless power supply in 2007, Japanese companies (and not only) sought to replicate and even surpass MIT’s results.
Remember that Tesla turbine we wrote about two years ago? Or the Tesla turbine made out of a hard drive? Nikola Tesla patented these turbines back in 1913, but he wasn’t able to build them properly because the metals he could use at that time didn’t have the right thickness and quality.
Eric Giler, chief executive of US firm Witricitywireless, talks about a new system that can deliver power to devices without the need for wires. The new system exploits simple physics principles and can be used to charge a range of electronic devices over several meters.
Before going into the details of this invention it would be worthwhile to have an idea of how any generator, even in theory, could be capable of producing a self-sustaining current. This has been clearly explained by Walter M. Elsasser in a Scientific American article (May 1958) titled “The Earth as a Dynamo.”
