Wi-Tri? Yes Please!

Tired:

witricity-2

Plugging in is lame. And for those of us who work in a home office/in their bed and cannot physically separate themselves from their MB for a period longer than < 3 minutes tops, constantly moving electrical outlets or running down battery power is draining to say the least. Speaking of batteries…

Expired:

witricity-0

Noooooooo! my ipaaaaaaaad!

Fire Hazard:

witricity-1

There’s no doubt aboot it. This maxed out power bar and the five others i have stashed in every corner of my apartment are a hazard of some kind. Which brings me to my topic du jour.

Wires suck. Wireless is uber. I love bluetoothing my keyboard, streaming my music to my sound system, backing up my photos to a wireless HD. Airport Extreme is l33t.

(wireless mice however have caused me some grief… but that’s another kettle of worms. what?)

Future of Wirelessness: Wi-Tri!:

Wi-fi meet Wi-Tri: wireless electricity!! Boo-yah!

WiTricity
n. Electricity that is transferred wirelessly between two electromagnetic coils resonating at the same frequency. It could one day power laptops and charge cell phones cordlessly, but engineers will need to increase the 7-foot range and 40 percent power efficiency.

For more, here’s Wiki.

You can DO it smart tech scientists of the world! i believe… i believe… mostly.

Ok. Back to work. So stressed out right now.

    Dern, the stress must be overwhelming.

    Our bodies are bombarded with non-ionizing electromagnetic energy/radiation all day long, what’s a little near field magnetically inductive coupled resonance energy flying around the house going to hurt.

    I have to say, you truly have a gift, it’s not everyone who could end a vaguely technical post with a picture of themselves in a bikini…

    Then again, it’s probably better for all of us if some don’t!

    I love my bluetooth work cell and my voice recognition PDA. Hands-free is so much fun.

    Wireless is great, until you get so many people in one small area using wireless. Because then stuff starts going wrong everywhere.

    I too despise the amount of cables underneath my work desk, constantly having to recharge my laptop, plugging in my external drive, my ipod, and my camera.

    Wi-tri sounds awesome. Only thing I’m a little concerned with is how this affects our bodies. What is getting pumped out into the air. I smell brain tumas and cancer. I’m probably just being a little over cautious though.

    My iPod kicked the bucket a few months ago. I’ve been using Jo’s Nano, but won’t upgrade for a while.

    […] point is wired things > wireless things. Wait? That’s not true. Wireless things are way better. In fact, I hate wires and cables and plugs. Just look at them all. I’m practically swimming […]
