Qualcomm is working with other companies like Duracell, EverWin and Gill Industries on a concept called “WiPower” – Powering devices wireless. You put a phone down on a desk, it’s charging. You move the light closer but don’t have to worry about the cord.
Gil Industries makes office furniture. Their idea is to put WiPower in most of their units. Therefore, a desk will have 2-3 WiPower charging stations, instead of a confabulation of wires heading to a over-plugged surge protector. Clean and beautiful is the idea here.
Gill Industries works on creating office solutions. However, you might even be able to find WiPower in home solutions soon, like coffee tables and countertops.
