“iPod users may soon have a wireless power charging system, thanks to UK firm Splashpower,” Martyn Williams reports for Macworld UK. “The company exhibited its new technology at Ceatec in Japan… The company demonstrated the system in use and showed two prototype charging pads, or Splash Pads as the company is calling them. One was large enough to accommodate several devices and the other was smaller and offered enough space for a single device. To pick up the power field, gadgets must have a receiver coil built into them or have an adapter clipped on the back. The company demonstrated a clip-on adapter for an iPod mini and a Nokia mobile phone with a built-in coil. Both devices, when placed on the pads, began charging.”
Williams reports, “In addition to Splash Pads for the home, the company is talking to auto makers about building pads into cars, and is also in talks with hotel chains interested in building the pads into room furniture, said said Lily Cheng, CEO and co-founder of Splashpower.”
