2011 CES - Electric Car Future: Wireless Charging

tech.lifegoesstrong.com – January 14, 2011 – In the picture on the left is a sleek red Tesla electric roadster. Although there is a giant jack sticking out of the side of the Tesla where a gas tank would normally be, this jack is not charging the Tesla. It's just for show. Out of sight under the Tesla on that pad on which it is parked is a big blue glowing circle. There is a matching circle attached to the underside of the Tesla. Power is being transferred between these circles wirelessly, charging the red Tesla.
