While the iPhone 5 has just been released, technology is already making it's step and advancing to the next level. WiTricity CEO Eric Giler has announced that he expects their wireless charging technology to be introduced commercially in mobile devices as early as next year.
WiTricity is now offering you a gateway to wireless power at an affordable price – in a new product called Prodigy. Prodigy is a hands-on demonstration system that lets you experience the magic of WiTricity technology--wireless power over distance.With Prodigy you’ll be able to power two devices from a single source, and experiment with a Resonant Repeater that lets wireless power “hop” over a larger distance, enhancing the range and flexibility of your wireless power solution. You’ll experiment by sending power through non-metallic materials—like a desk top, glass window, a brick wall!
