Wireless Electricity Is Here (Seriously)


tech.msn.com

strap on your rubber boots; Tesla's dream has come true. After more than 100 years of dashed hopes, several companies are coming to market with technologies that can safely transmit power through the air -- a breakthrough that portends the literal and figurative untethering of our electronic age.

Looks like wireless electricity is coming very soon. Several corporations are about to release this technology (interesting that they all are coming out with this at the same time).

Wireless electricity will change the world. No longer will a country need to clear forests to get power lines to villages.

Woohoo! There have been several teasers the last few years about this technology and of course there will be no problem with metering (Tesla wanted free power for all and this was the ultimate reason why Westinghouse stopped financing him).

This tecnology is amazing, there is a retailer in Japan already using it to power lamps on shelves and tills etc.

It's going to revolutionise everything!

If electricity is broadcast wont that waste an awful lot of energy?

I find it hard to believe that sending an amount of current over a low-resistance line directly to a receiving point is less efficient than creating a giant multidirectional, sustained burst of electricity that may or may not reach a receiving device.

A system similar to how satellite television is sent to a receiving dish would be better then have some sort of regulator to disperse the electricity just within a radius large enough to cover the appliances that will use it but there would still but an awful lot of waste so once the electricity is received in the home the traditional wires would still be the better choice.

But I'm no physicist.

I cant wait! Soon cops can tase all of us just by sticking their arm out the window of the donut shop and blast away.

Ha ha, but think electric vehicles not weighed down by batteries that never need charging. Now that will be cool!

This may well be the "Holy Grail" of free energy transmissions and the realization of Tesla's dream of free and easily accessible energy. However I am sure that there will be some way to meter usage. Maybe that is why so many companies have achieved this advancement spontaneously. They may have known about the capacity to transmit but could not measure the transmission?
This may bring up a good conspiricy in itself.

I'm with you on the wastefulness of wireless energy, however I think Tesla's designs called for a cleaner source of energy. I though he had done work in tapping the natural fields of energy present in all planets (kinda like Hoaglands 19.5 degree stuff). Also what about the health concerns of having our electricity in the open radiating everywhere instead of bundled up in copper behind studs and drywall.

Peace

Thank you for the good news. A literal light at the end of an oily dark tunnel (pipeline).

I see your middle eastern gold backed currency and raise you freedom from it's shackles.

Tesla produced wireless electricity and demostrated it as a fully viable and efficient invention over a hundred years ago. It was the first step of free electricity for the entire word and it was burried till now.


Makes you wonder what other ideas and creations are burried dont it?

exactly,

he DID it 100 years ago!!!!

it was not 'just a dream'!!!

yes, people are gullible

why it was buried? - no profit from it,
just like many thousand patents labeled 'top secret' every year...

and funniest thing is how some people 100 years of suppression
call 'progress' and are proud of it!!!



looks more like 100 years of slow regress to me

The guy on the video says the electricity is transferred over radio waves. Is this the reason for radio and tv going digital? I coincidentally need to rewire my 1950's era home.

whooohooo! indeed! Exactly what I was going to say!


*dances around all crazy with joy*

Ha! OP ,you beat to this post,but that's okay


I was looking for good news to post ,and this is GOOD NEWS!

OH , I loved the description of Tesla s Power Tower experiment

Lol wireless electricity has already been here since the late 1800s. It's called radio

Seriously anyone remember the crystal radio sets that kids used to build in science fair and people used back in the 1920s? They were unpowered radios that worked off of the electromagnetic energy in the air.

Back when I was first learning and building electronic circuits I took a simple crystal radio detecter and ran a 50 foot longwire to it for an antenna and powered a small LED bulb just from the energy in the air from a high powered radio station not far away from my home. The LED would stay on all day until the station switched to low power during the night hours.
If that isn't wireless energy I don't know what is


The major problem with wireless energy is the loss of energy over the path. Wire just makes for less resistance to energy so it can transfer it more efficiantly. Too much of the energy of a wireless system is at loss.
Teslas idea from what I remember was to send high voltage low amper current through the air probably at radio frequencies (I'd like to see the FCC allow for that!). Once picked up by the antenna it would be converted to low voltage high amper current to be of use. The problem is the wireless sender would have to be of insanely high voltages to achive this. Not only that but the receiver of the power would need a voltage regulator to keep it at a constant current/voltage.
There are just too many problems with this kind of system, not to mention Teslas idea would have probably screwed up radio communications for hundreds of miles.

maybe thats the point. We live in a world driven by profit. If this method is terribly inefficient that means profit.

Dont forget there is a multi-billion dollar per yr battery industry to think of. This technology will end that industry so it must be a better money-maker

And just imagine this application going to electric cars. No more heavy batteries or charging stations.

frankly Im a little surprised theyre letting this technology out. Seems like it will hurt a lot of businesses

Umm...has anyone considered the health implications of this? We already bombard the planet the hundreds of thousands of times more radiation that life evolved with (and don't give me that nonsense about how the sun emits lots of radiation - it's not digital, pulsed microwave radiation from cell phones, WiFi, DECT, and WiMax, which are not biologically compatible). I think it's a preposterous idea to literally fill the air with every type of EMF we can create.

People just don't get it yet.

hmmmm i can kind of see trillions and trillions of free electrons zapping around everywhere somewhat causing ELF electric fields that would be somewhat undesirable to the human mind.

it will also cause intense static charges to form.......

Yay, someone found a better way to harmonize two resonant induction coils!

... the jerk isn't even hinting at how he did it... ungh, I want to know!


Previous methods of tuning coils to "tunnel" energy between them at relatively high efficiency were done by simply matching the length and diameter of the coils, tuning the wavelength to match the coil, and further tuning the coils trough the use of capacitor plates at either end of the coil.

Not unlike how old the theory behind AM receivers used to work.


The problem remained that the coil didn't use enough of the energy received by the emitting coil, because even though they were 'tuned' to each other, it still couldn't resonate effectively with the other coil... it took energy to induce the resonance by the primary coil, and further energy to induce the charge itself.

The head scratcher has been how to get the secondary coil to resonate with the primary coil without wasting so much of the waveform to do it.

Cool. I can't wait to purchase my blackbox power stealer.

Bahahaha.

Screw the power companies.
