Magic charger

CityPress - - Opportunity index -

By the power of science, and pos­si­bly magic, a 25-year-old US as­tro­bi­ol­ogy stu­dent has cre­ated

uBeam – a de­vice that al­lows you to wire­lessly charge your phone. It uses ul­tra­sound to send elec­tric­ity to your de­vice through the air, a re­ceiver then catches the sound and con­verts it back into elec­tric­ity. This means your phone is free of ca­bles and you can move around while it charges. Wel­come to the fu­ture!

While a work­ing pro­to­type has been cre­ated of the uBeam, the project is now in its fund­ing phase and it may be a few years be­fore we see it on the shelves. We wish they would hurry up al­ready. –
