Researchers develop wireless charging system that works more than 15 feet away

  1. Wireless charging as a whole is still in its infancy but is making progress nevertheless. A team of researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have improved upon an existing wireless charging protocol to more than triple...

    So if I have one of those wireless chargers and my home is next to a powerline, I have the potential to have a free power connection? :)

    Yes, and you probably have the potential for contracting cancer for free also due to the radiation. But the treatments for it won't be free. Well, unless you think the thing that gave you cancer can actually cure it as well, which many people do.

  4. Tesla wireless electicity works 8 miles away.
    Fact. Used.
    Patented.
    You will never ever get it.

    And your neighbours as well. They can all charge their devices from your charger and you'd be none the wiser. :)

    and on this note, have the regulators in the u.s.a. released a study on the long-time effect of cellphones, cellphone antenna towers, wireless routers on the health of Americans?

    afaik, in the Philippines, there are housing subdivisions which disallow cellphone antenna towers in the neighborhood for alleged increased incidence of cancers and other health risks. no definitive proof was offered. all telecoms refuted the risks to human health.

    Anything from hair standing to cancer will make a nice addition.
     
  8. This is also in reply to the person who mentioned cell tower and WiFi signals in comparison.

    EMF radiation has been "Proven by some, yet dis-proven by others" to accelerate and create cancer growth. That's simply from living within 1/4 mile of high voltage power lines.

    When you send this signal wirelessly, then step into the field of range you are now directing those EMF waves directly towards yourself...or "through" yourself. Albeit may be that there has been "No evidence" of direct cancer relation, it is proven that the rate of birth defects of those living closer to high voltage power lines is higher than those who do not. Coincidence? That's up to you to decide. If a government scientist found a small trace of radiation from cell phone signals do you think they would tell everyone to throw them out? Didn't think so.

    Very close to Tesla's achievements;maybe in next millennium

    With all the other waves in the air how can you narrow down the source of cancer to one specific source. Also worth noting is people who live close to high voltage power lines generally don't have the best healthcare, job, living conditions, water supply, diet, ect. So to say that high voltage power lines are a definitive source of cancer is very difficult in my opinion. What I can say is that I wouldn't want to be in the same room as those coils, let alone in-between them.

    EMFs are emitting from technology is known to cause headaches, fatigue, confusion, drowsiness, etc. If people start putting these in stores or homes it could create a lot of health issues. For some reason humans love to sacrifice their health for conveniency.
