Multiple devices can be topped up simultaneously with this magnetic resonance technology, regardless of how they are placed in reference to the station.
The Japanese plan to ready the breakthrough for the mass market in 2012, at first in cell phones and other gadgets. Remote wireless charging will be developed for larger tasks as well, such as charging the electric car in your garage, for example. More details will be spilled by the company at today's IEICE conference in Osaka. You go, Fujitsu!
