ONE OF THE most useful pieces of technology I have in my office is a set of phone chargers. Peple ask to use them more than anything else I have in my gadget drawer. We have speculated that the day is near when you won't need a cable to recharge things and at CES 2007 eCoupled technology offers a new ecosystem of personal power that recharges without wires. Fulton Innovation, Visteon, Motorola, Herman Miller and Mobility Electronics are working jointly to commercialize solutions in the portable consumer electronics arena.
Intelligent wireless power works through inductive coupling. Energy gets transferred from one device to another through a shared magnetic field. This is nothing new--the technology stems from the foundational work of renowned scientists Michael Faraday and Nikola Tesla.
Fulton Innovation's intelligent inductive power technology overcomes historic limitations of inductive coupling by using resonance-seeking circuitry that dynamically seeks and optimizes power transfer under multiple, varying load conditions and spatial configurations.
Some consider intelligent wireless recharging to be the most innovative technology on display at CES 2007.
Fulton Innovation explains in their press release.
