Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Cambridge, US, have managed to light a 60-watt light bulb from an energy source seven feet away. They hope the system can be adapted to charge mobile phones, MP3 players, laptops and other appliances. The technology is being dubbed “WiTricity” by the scientists.
Nicola Tesla demonstrated the potential over 100 years ago, in Colorado Springs in 1899 by lighting 200 light bulbs – from 26 miles away.
The new approach involves two coils joined by an invisible resonating magnetic field with one coil attached to a power source acting as a sender unite, the field resonates with a receiver coil.
One coil attached to a power source acts as a sender unit and the field resonates with a receiver coil, inducing a current to flow through it.
Professor Peter Fisher, who helped to conduct the research said: “As long as the laptop is in a room equipped with a source of such wireless power, it would charge automatically, without having to be plugged in. In fact, it would not even need a battery to operate inside of such a room.”
