Back in 2017, Qual­comm built a 100-me­tre stretch of road in France ca­pa­ble of charg­ing an elec­tric car with 20 kilo­watts of power at av­er­age high­way speeds. Qual­comm, how­ever, says that dy­namic elec­tric ve­hi­cle charg­ing (DEVC) is part of the com­pany’s R & D di­vi­sion and doesn’t have con­firmed plans to im­ple­ment it else­where. The idea, while ex­cel­lent Red­dit fod­der, still feels a long way away, even in 2045.
