    US researchers show off a system that can deliver power to devices without the need for wires at a hi-tech conference.

    Wireless Power

    Sounds very interesting. This might help Jezza with his USB Chainsaw issues

    As far as I can recall, I heard about a system like that when I was in high school. (Back in the fifties)

    Did somebody just find that theory in the back of some old dusty closet?

    I believe that the recent research is about how the coils can be tuned so that they both resonate at a frequency that has a very long wavelength. The power can then be transmitted across a distance less than the wavelength with very little impact on any other aerial (such as your body).
