No longer will our iPad be shackled to a wall in your room...freedom.
Energous has created a product that will charge any battery-operated device (that requires less than 10 Watts) for up to 12 devices. A "WattUp" transmitter will send energy through a radio frequency to your device when requested. It converts that signal into battery power. This allows you to walk anywhere within the room with your device while it is charging.
The transmitter has a 15ft radius so as long as you are within those bounds your device will be charging. The reason I'm saying device so often instead of phone is because it can charge much more than just your phone. Beside phones they aim to charge fitness trackers, smart watches, computer accessories, remote controls, gaming controllers, LED lighting, and battery-powered children's toys. The best part is that, with an app on your phone, you can control which devices are to be charged and which are not.
This will mean that if you purchase this product, the number of wires in your room will decrease heavily. No more will you accidentally grab your phone when the charger is still attached or have to talk while standing in the corner of your room in an uncomfortable position. WattUp was unveiled in CES 2015 and will be released sometime soon.
