news.bbc.co.uk

Magnetic induction could soon spell the end of tangled cables and a frustrating hunt for the gadget's charger.

Israeli company Powermat uses RFID tags to identify what is being laid down to charge. The RFID tags are held in a case made to fit around popular gadgets such as iPods, laptops, and mobile phones.

The first products fitted with the eCoupled technology should appear by late 2009

Finally some technology advancements that make sense and could potentialy lead to technologies closer to free energy!!

Dont get me wrong, Im not saying this is anywhere near free energy, all im saying is, that in my opinion, this tech relates very closely to free energy ideas out there at the mo and could be a stepping stone or a step closer!!

Any thoughts??

Apologies and updated as requested!!

This news article is dated today, I am quite aware that the idea has been out there for a long time, I'm just glad to see it'll finally be put into practicle use, unlike many other great technologies being swept under the carpet!!
