Wires suck! My wires just aggregate dust and the worst part is, I often forgot which is plug is for which equipment. Really expect the day to come when no wires are needed for electricity power. Eric Giler wants to untangle our wired lives with cable-free electric power. Here, he covers what this sci-fi tech offers, and demos MIT’s breakthrough version, WiTricity — a near-to-market invention that may soon recharge your cell phone, car, pacemaker.
It’s very cool, isn’t it? Don’t miss the demo part which starts at 6:30.
The Energy Market Authority (EMA) has revised the formula for setting the electricity tariff for households after consulting key stakeholders in the energy industry and members of the public. The revised formula will be used to set the electricity tariff from July 2009 onwards.
