It looks like mankind has taken another baby step towards our goal of getting wireless power. This latest bit of news points that Sony has prototyped a system which is able to transmit up to 60W of power to a TV located 50cm away, not sure enough for it to replace your current home theater setup, but we’re certainly getting there. It uses the magnetic resonance method which MIT proposed back in 2006, but Sony came up with a repeater device which enables the range to be increased (which is what we really want, right?) We’re still waiting for the time where we can just come home and our electronic devices start charging on their own, but it seems like we’re still a ways off.
