WiTricity – Wireless Electricity


Well this is actually and old idea that was brought back by MIT Scientist.

It reminds me of the game Command & Conquer – Red Alert where the Russian had Tesla coils zapping enemy units.

Tesla came from the name of a person, Nikola, Tesla, who is actually a United States electrical engineer and inventor (born in Croatia but of Serbian descent) who discovered the principles of alternating currents and developed the first alternating-current induction motor and the Tesla coil and several forms of oscillators (1856-1943).

It was then, we had wireless power transfer capabilty. Tesla releases deadly superhot plasma energy.

But now, MIT researchers found a way to do it in a “safely” manner. But for me, radio frequencies are hazardous to living organism. get a brief info on it here.

This is basically how it works.



At a rate of 10Mhz, surely more people would be suffering from radio frequency radiation.

It is a basic law of physics, where energy is not destroyed, it is just got transfered. For example, if you are using a mobile phone for about half an hour, surely you will get a headache. Mobile phone transmit a standard frequency of 2Mhz. Imagine what 10Mhz would do if you are tagged to it daily.

Technology does have its advantages, but more often, have it disadvantages.
