New system to "eliminate" batteries

Quote:
"The university claims the new system could reduce the number of batteries sent to landfill sites. Researchers at the University of Bedfordshire have developed a new technique for powering electronic devices. The system, developed by Prof Ben Allen at the Centre for Wireless Research, uses radio waves as power. Believed to be a world first, the team claims it could eventually eliminate the need for conventional batteries..."

Sounds promising but still see the need for a storage device otherwise zero chance I'm going to trust my alarm clock back up to radio waves. "Boss there was an inversion layer that interfered with my alarm clock and that's why I'm late". It's like wind energy or solar, if you don't capture it to a storage cell what do you do when the wind stops or the sun goes down.

In fact when considering infrastructure apparently transmitting energy was the first thought, not wires.

Don't use that word genius loosely. To me a genius is someone who has multiple inventions that still in use today. People today are just inventing crap. Just look at all those Infomercials lol.

Why don't they just fit larger batteries into our mobile devices - I'm sure we could cope with some of them being slightly larger. I mean a few weeks worth is a great improvement over a few days worth.

For what it's worth, I'm using a Logitech solar-powered keyboard and it has performed admirably even in cloudy conditions.

Energy from known sources (solar, heat, water, fuel, etc), sent or stored in known type of system is undeniable.
Yeah. I lately hear discussion about creating device to transmit energy (wireless energy). Sounds possible and promising as this far an encrypted huge digital data can be transferred using certain frequency carriers. But electricity is no data, it's an energy.
Hope the transmissions won't go into the wrong receivers.

It's a nice concept but remember all the people who developed neurological issues after living near high tension power lines for a few years.....just saying.
