New Patent Filed by Sony® for the Transmission of Wireless Technology
Over the past decade, technology has made us go wireless. We went wireless with our Internet connections, mobile phones, and televisions. Yet we need to plug-in wires once in a while to charge our devices. Charging seems to be the last frontier where we still need to go wireless. But it seems that Sony will soon conquer that last frontier too. The company has filed a patent that apparently allows for a secure and efficient transmission of wireless power.
The new wireless source might be integrated into common household appliances, devices or furniture, such as kitchen tables. The patent does not describe the process much, and only states that, it would support “wireless power transmission of several tens watts, at a distance of several meters.” The patent also stated that this technology could be integrated in both home and office appliances.
Any Serious Threats?
There are speculations that this wireless technology might invite some serious threats like heat generation. It may also hit unintended devices that might not support the voltage of the power source and above all the loss of power over distances. However, in a reply to this, Sony said that with its technology it is possible to prevent deterioration in power transmission efficiency, prevent influence on other devices, and other unintended apparatus.
With all the promises and expectations for now, all we can do is wait till the technology is launched by Sony. If it is launched as promised, it will make the use of devices easy in everyday life. Imagine a coffee shop where 10 people want to charge their cell phones. All they have to do is keep their devices on a table to charge them from a distance apparatus.
Now, you will no longer have to wait for your turn to charge your device. Rather than having others to plug out their devices so that you can use the power point, you can all share the same charging device for multiple gadgets.
