I read about this and it's pretty amazing. Electrical current traveling through the air in a magnetic field. Imagine not having to plug things into outlets anymore. It sounds like they're pushing it so that it will work with appliances and office machines, and in one application they're working with some of the auto interior companies to create cupholder cell phone docks that don't need to be hard-wired to the car's battery.

So this is a magnetic field? I wonder how that will affect computers and other magnetic devices. Regardless, this sounds REALLY cool.

Right now, it sounds like they are mainly targeting this technology for recharging cell phones, IPOD's, PDA's etc. , by placing these devices in an eCoupled "hotspot". But the eCoupled system is capable of transmitting up to 1400 watts within an inch or so of the base.

Here are a couple of more articles (not press releases put out by the company):

A little over a year later and eCoupled Technology is slowly building steam. The idea I found the most intriguing in this new article in the Press is the idea of having eCoupled "Hot Spots" on tables in coffee shops, completely negating the need to plug in your laptop while you're working away on it. I can't tell you how many times I've searched coffee shops, Panera Breads and other places for the nearest outlet, so I can save precious battery power for when I really need it.
