    I remember that article too. Here on TPU I believe.

    At any rate, I wouldnt be worried about radiation. Id just like it to be a bit further, perhaps 20 feet or so :).

    In any light, this is an amazing feat and pretty damn awesome.

    For small things, this could have some use. However on a large scale, I don't think this is happening, too much interference, issues w/ frying things, and what about the amperage? How is that going to power 2 HD 2900XT's in crossfire?

    id have to agree unless they found someway to beam it directly to the device instead of filling a whole room with it....for example have a type of dome like a security camera and then have it have like rotating transformers beam directly at the device automatically because of liek a homing beacon or something. like a little beacon that gives off a frequency that tells tyhe tranformers were to turn.

    This is not new Tesla did this fifty years ago. Tesla invented electricity that you could stick your hand into but not get shocked but could power devices and be transmitted wirelessly a really long time ago. They may have prefected it but hardly did they invent it. here is one of the million threads that talks about it http://home.earthlink.net/~drestinblack/wireless.htm

    here is a very cool web page http://www.teslasociety.com/
