António Abreu, a PhD Student at the MIT Portugal Program who works at LNEG (Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia I.P.), has been hard at work in developing a wireless charging system that will cater for implantable medical devices. This particular project that he has been sweating over makes plenty of sense. After all, if you were to have some sort of medical implant keeping you alive, it certainly needs […]

The Google Nexus 4 Pure Android smartphone has been available for some time, and for those lucky enough to get one before the supply crunch (it’s back on the Google Store now), they may be happy to learn that the official Wireless charger is now available for order, and should ship “soon” according to the Google Play Store (soon = less than one week?).
The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb has been quite the elusive creature so far, but perhaps this particular situation might change from February 2013 onwards. According to a product listing at Dustin Home, the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb looks as though it will make its way to the masses a couple of days before Valentine’s, but you will need to fork out 599 krona for this bad boy. That […]

A paperless environment is definitely worth looking into, although I do not think that it is viable at this moment since paper is still an important aspect in terms of documentation. Wireless connectivity, however, has its place in the future, but there are still limits to it. Wireless headphones have been around for quite some time already as it lays the ghost of a wired existence to rest, but how […]

LG recently announced a Qi-enabled handset from their stables at the recently concluded CES, coming in the form of the LG Revolution. Just what does Qi wireless charging offer? For starters, its main vision is to transform virtually every flat surface into a wireless charging station, and that would sound the death knell for wires and cables down the road. Many of the notable phone manufacturers such as HTC, LG, […]

Maybe most people aren’t willing to pay an extra for the convenience, but let’s face it, sometime we’re all a little lazy and taking those extra 3 seconds to connect our phone might be just a little too much to deal with. That’s […]
