Never Plug In Again

MIT’s Professor Alan Epstein and a team of researchers have come up with a possible alternative to batteries. Gas-turbine engines made in miniscule sizes could power a laptop for 15 to 20 hours, and cost roughly the same price as a battery of the same weight. He believes it will be commercially available in three to five years.

While thinking about these power advancements, I decided to check up on Splashpower, a Japanese company I researched last fall for a telecommunications paper. They are at the frontline of new technology that will make it possible to “wirelessly” charge portable devices. Their main product is the SplashPad, a small pad (resembling a thick mousepad) that you simply place devices on to charge them (cell phones, mp3 players, digital cameras, etc). Such devices would have to be Splashpower-enabled, of course. It’s a pretty cool idea, but still not completely wireless, by other standards. You still have to place the device on the pad for it to charge.

I believe that someday we will live in a world where all our technological devices will charge and run from power wirelessly, similar to the way your cell phone works through a connection to local landlines. Technologies like this are proof that we are quickly heading that way.

    In the article you linked it says 15 to 20 hours, not years, which is still pretty awesome.
