Fulton Innovation Bringing New Wireless Charging Technologies To CES 2013
As if that wasn't enough, Fulton will show off an interactive printed poster with an illustration of a DJ console that can actually be played. Music is made by tapping the speakers, mixer, and turntable, while placing the same tablet that wirelessly charges a mobile phone near the poster for power. The combination of printed electronics and two-way wireless power creates a new way of connecting to consumers through interactive posters, magazines, food packaging, and more. Using its new Adaptive Resonance technology, Fulton will demonstrate a surface that wirelessly charges multiple Qi-compatible devices at once. Placing the phones or tablets on one pad will charge simultaneously, recognizing and adapting to the power needs of each devices.
We have to admit -- this sure feels like the most mature advancement yet in wireless power, but we're still missing one major thing. That would be the ability to have a TV charge with no wires while hanging on the wall, and a laptop charge with no wires regardless of where you move. Something tells us we're still a very long way from that happening.
