The phone is bleeping every 3 seconds and it’s about to shut down. You rush to nearest cafe sit down and reach for… nothing. No need for a charger. The wireless charging network being offered by the host cafe/office/airport/mall/public space will automatically charge your phone.
This will soon be a real scenario thanks to the innovative AND inventive research of Meredith Perry of UBeam. She claim that the wireless charging model being offered by her company will be as commonplace as wifi internet. Ubeam uses sound, technically ultrasound waves emitting from a small panel to charge electronic devices.
Meredith goes as far to promise that this technology will remove the need for international adapters and eventually power outlets!
