New Wireless Charger Can Charge Your Phone From 15 Feet Away Dylan Duarte April 22, 2014 While reading this story about a new wireless charger, I looked over at the bundle of wires on my entertainment center and my mouth bent into a comical frown. Wires, for all the wonderful data and power that they carry, are the absolute pits. Wireless technology is the best thing since sliced bread and this new wireless charging system is even better. Wireless chargers have been around for a while, but a team of Korean scientists have found a way to boost the reach of the charge from five to over fifteen feet, which means you can charge a device from all the way across most rooms. The possibilities are exciting. Think of a coffee shop where your mobile gadgets start charging as soon as you walk in the room. The wireless charger project is pretty far from consumer hands, however. And to be honest, the video below makes it look a bit frightening. Perhaps I’m a luddite, though. Check out the video and let us know if you’d go anywhere near this thing. via Gizmodo Share This With The World!
