MIT Assistant Professor of Physics Marin Soljačić couldn’t sleep. The sound of his wife’s dying cell phone beeping over and over as it went dead was keeping him up. One night he laid awake thinking, “if there was so much electricity running through the house and in nearby objects, surely some of them could charge the stupid phone.” He was right. Soljačić transformed that nuisance and theory into a solution using principles of wireless power transmission. The solution will allow him to never have to listen to his wife’s dying phone again. Of course, Marin Soljačić was not the first to conceptualize wireless electricity, his work is based on many others’ research and discoveries in the field of wireless electricity.
