Wireless electricity is shockingly good

thesun.co.uk - April 14, 2011 - WIRELESS electricity has arrived in the UK for the first time - paving the way for the next generation of gadgets like this invisible 'hob'.

The technology turns a normal looking work surface into an instant power source which can heat saucepans, charge phones and run kettles.

And it does it all WITHOUT the need for charging or being piping hot, so you can boil water and then touch it straight after.

The eCoupled™ intelligent wireless power has just gone on show at the Gadget Show Live event, currently running at Birmingham's NEC. Designers hope one day it could be used in millions of kitchens and offices across the world.
