Whoa... Power delivered without wires to devices! There's an article on BBC News' website titled Physics promises wireless power was pointed out on Slashdot.org today. I'm still trying to get my head around this one and I think I'm getting there.

It's actually a pretty cool concept. Basically, they use specialized frequencies of EM energy to transfer a charge from an antenna to a ready device. It's still just a computer model right now, but hopefully it will eventually enter the development stage. Who knows, we might someday experience something like this:
"...I'm going to have to call you back. My mobile phone's about to lose power -- Nevermind, I just passed a charger. What were you saying?"
