Draadloos opladen komt eraan

We berichtten er hier al eerder over:
LinkNotes: Laptop draadloos opladen
LinkNotes: Herman Miller: Draadloos opladen met eCoupled technologie
LinkNotes: Powercast - Wireless Power
maar eindelijk is het dan toch zover:

When you put that toothbrush in its charging cradle, you'll notice that no metal contacts are exposed for the electricity to charge the batteries. The toothbrush charges magically, right through the plastic.

Don't look now, but that very same technology is coming soon to your cell phone, your iPod -- even your laptop. 2007 is the year that truly mainstream wirelessly charging products finally go on sale.
