Look Mummy! No wires!

Wireless power! (BBC news): damn cool tech idea of using a novel design of resonant "non-radiative" objects (at about 6.4MHz) to beam power a number of meters between appliances or components.

No prototypes build yet, sounds very useful, provided it genuinely doesn't interfere badly with other equipment/things that happen to have the same resonances. A real boon for household layout, no wall sockets needed, lighting and appliance positions ultra flexible + small, embedded electronic devices in portable items: clothing, domestic/manufacturing robots can recharge unnoticed and just plain work!

  1. Wonder if anything about the human body would resonate at 6.4Mhz... that would be amusing!
