Intel Moves to Free Gadgets of Their Recharging Cords – NYTimes.com

The Intel team describes its system as a “wireless resonant energy link,” and is experimenting with antennas less than two feet in diameter to remotely light a 60-watt light bulb.

In 2006, the M.I.T. researchers demonstrated that by sending electromagnetic waves around a waveguide it was possible to produce “evanescent” waves that could permit electricity to wirelessly tunnel to another waveguide “tuned” to the transmitting loop.

Mostly, I think it’s pretty cool, albeit another 25% in power consumption by all the things that are currently plugged in doesn’t sound so great.
