wireless electricity distribution

So, Tesla worked and believed this would revolutionize the globe years ago and was basically laughed at. What does everyone think about this idea and the possibilities/effect it would have? How far can it be carried out? Was Tesla right?

Notice Tesla was not even mentioned in the article =(

I believe its possible and its already being done. Electricity, after all, is a form of energy. Say, we convert electric energy into light energy, distribute it 'wirelessly' and then convert it into electric energy again.

[PS: I've not yet read the article.]

All we need is highly efficient energy converters - the world will be a better place then. 😉
Here's another article on the same topic: The Associated Press: Intel demonstrates powering up without plugging in

It states that Intel managed an efficiency of 75%. But the original MIT team that worked on it last year claims it has now efficiencies of up to 90%!

This is pretty exciting stuff 😀 In communications, you can pretty much power up simple receivers (with headphones as the transducer) using the radio waves alone.

Regarding mention of Tesla, its probably something the editor neglected out of ignorance because its a news article. In most scientific technical journals, you MUST state your references anyway.

Reallity is stronger & tougher than fiction...man in years ahead we can contribute similar wireless electric supply to all other devices using various forms of Transducer.

Shall i have the website address to watch that Intel's new Project regarding Microwave Electricity.

yaa this is true now u can recharge ur mobile or lapy form a distance and that to without using wires...
just check this out..
u can make it as major project also...

Where exactly could I find this article?😕 I'd like to go through it before commenting.

Thanks in advance

How would you use wireless electricity?Intel is developing wireless electricity, which is transferred not through wires, but through the magnetic spectrum. If you had access to this technology today, how would you use it?

If it is perfected like Tesla theorized, you would no longer need a physical conduit to transfer the electrcal power from source to end use. It would require large Tesla coils. Everything powered via AC would thus be powered similar to "remote control" only being current not radio waves transmitted.

I see another side to this. If power can be transmitted then the need for centralized power supply will be easier to get rid of. If everyone can transmit power from their solar panels, wind turbines, small hydro electric stations then we can all share power as needed. We will not be relying on the "grid" to stay up and running much like the internet is decentralized. Have a problem, go around...........

Yes your right, just like WiFi. Good thing is, electricity does not need any protocols for frame integrity 😛

But, I think centralized power can still be used. Since transmission inefficiencies through power lines can be disregarded, and range is near unlimited, might as well have major connecting nodes distributing to the households. In addition, some processes still utilize economies of scale.. thus, having a large solar and wind farm will still has an advantage over decentralized generation for now.
