Ever wondered what the future looked like? It has been speculated upon in movies and television shows for years. Well in all the wild images of the future, few could have dreamed up something like this. Its known as wireless electricity, and it could be making its way to your house sooner than you think.
According to CNN, an experiment done by Katie Hall, produced an image of a house, that could be the model for homes in the future. A light bulb was able to glow without any wires at all, instead according to Dr. Hall, a magnetic field is used to transfer power. “When you bring a device into that magnetic field, it induces a current in the device, and by that you’re able to transfer power,” explains Dr Hall.
A company called WiTricity, would build these devices, and already has experience in producing other electronic items which are powered in much the same way. If these items were to be brought into our house, it would revolutionize the way we use power. In an era when efficiency is crucial, WiTricity could be close to a cutting-edge breakthrough.
