In 2005 Professor Marin Soljačić and his team at MIT developed the theory that you could transfer electricity over a distance. Later in 2007 they managed to turn theory in to reality by illuminating a light bulb over a 2-meter distance. With this began the development of the WiTricity technology.

WiTricity then made it’s first public appearance in July 2007 in the prestigious Science magazine. Later in 2008 Prof. Marin Soljačić’s work was awarded the MacArthur Fellowship and was recognised as one of the “Top Ten Emerging Technologies “by Technology Review. WiTricity was also hailed as one of the “Top 100 Science Stories of 2007” by Discover Magazine and mentioned as part of “The Year in Ideas – 2007” in The New York Times Magazine.

Over recent years WiTricity Corp has developed this technology to work over longer distances and in 2009 Eric Giler appeared on ideas broadcasting website TED to demonstrate the technology. In this demonstration Giler showed a TV and an iPhone powered wirelessly.

Recently in 2011 WiTricity was awarded additional funding as part of General Electric’s green energy program where they issued $63 million to 10 selected companies. In the following months WiTricity have licensed the technology to IHI, who are developing wireless car charging technologies for a selection of Japanese car manufacturers, and MediaTek, a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions.

As the exclusive licensee of this MIT intellectual property, WiTricity Corp continues to work with third parties to further develop the technology.

What is WiTricity?

WiTricity is the technological process of transferring electricity from a traditional source into a magnetic field, similar to the magnetic field that currently flows around the earth. In WiTricity enabled devices, such as a mobile phone, there is a receiver that transfers the magnetic field back into electricity.

The trick is that the magnetic field resonates at a particular frequency, unique to this technology. Only devices that can pick up this frequency will be able to absorb the magnetic field meaning other devices and objects are not affected. This is what makes this technology so safe as it is not absorbed by the body. In fact it’s safer than some WiFi frequencies.

In the coming years we will see more and more devices becoming WiTricity enabled meaning wires in the home and the office will become a thing of the past. In fact, battery life will take on a new role of keeping you going between WiTricity Hotposts rather than days at a time. Additionally this opens the doors for thinner, more compact and more powerful mobile devices.

WiTricity Partner Companies

Witricity Hotspot Ltd

Our vision is to deliver a distribution network of Wireless Electricity Hotspots supporting the WiTricity technology.

The technology, currently under development by WiTricity in Watertown, Massachusetts, is capable of delivering a charge wirelessly to electric vehicles, mobile devices and household electronic items through the use of highly coupled magnetic resonance. Our vision is a future where you can charge your electric vehicle and have all your mobile devices seamlessly connect and charge at thousands of Hotspot locations, much like you connect with WiFi today.
