RCA Airnergy Converts Wi-Fi Signals To Energy On The Cheap
Currently, the product is a standalone device that measures around 2"x3", and it's expected to go on sale this summer for below $50. A smaller version is obviously in the works, and having it embedded into other items is a definite possibility. Unfortunately, actual details about how the product works are being kept under wraps (understandable), but the gist here is remarkable. We are even hearing that the product doesn't need to be synced/connected with a Wi-Fi network; so long as signals are around, it can convert them to energy.
Now, if only this technology could be advanced to the point where charging a notebook were possible by just catching nearby waves, we're guessing the entire computing world could be turned on its head.
