The ideal goal in using wireless charging technology is to enter a room that automatically charges all your belongings. Researchers have now been able to build a safety room that can power your devices through 50-watt magnetic fields.
Researchers at the University of Michigan and the University of Tokyo have teamed up to build a room where electricity flows. This idea could cover all buildings in the future and turn all rooms into wireless charging stations. Alanson Sample, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Michigan Says“This technology increases the power level of the ubiquitous computing world. “This way you can put your computer wherever you want and no longer have to worry about charging it.”
Sample continues: “This technology can also have a variety of medical applications; For example, devices implanted in the heart require a wire that passes through the body and connects to an external energy source. “The current technology is able to reduce the risk of infection and improve the quality of life of patients.”
Researchers are now trying to reduce the size of the pieces so that they can be carried. There have been examples of this technology in the past, but it poses a risk of damage with microwave radiation. But researchers say the solution is completely safe. Because their system uses devices called finite capacitors. These devices can be inserted into gaps in walls to create strong magnetic fields.
This mechanism has improved significantly compared to other wireless charging systems, because in the past we could only transfer large volumes of energy over short distances of a few millimeters or deliver small amounts of energy over long distances. Researchers now want to use the technology in a new building on the University of Michigan campus. However, it seems that we are still years away from implementing this system in the real world.
