Memorial Day

Memorial Day to many is about a three-day weekend of enjoying family, friends, barbecues, swimming pools and the unofficial start of summer. But Memorial Day is also about remembering those heroes who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Memorial Day began as Decoration Day after the civil war nearly 150 years ago, reflecting on the hundreds of thousands of Union and Confederate Soldiers that gave their lives. Today, Memorial Day serves as our opportunity to remember the sacrifices of more than 1 million brave Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsman who paid the ultimate price to ensure America’s freedom.

Let us also reflect on how their sacrifices have forever impacted their families, their loved ones, their friends, neighbors, and the extended community. These were our leaders, they were our children, our siblings, our parents, our spouses and our friends. And most important, they are our heroes. They were servants who served with pride and humility, and for love of country they gave their lives.

Our heroes may be gone…but are never forgotten.

Happy Memorial Day

Another WiGL Success

WiGL is pleased to share that Cubic Mission & Performance Solutions (Cubic), was able to complete testing that analyzed generated current at a receiver using multiple Energous (COTS) transmitters networked together (WiGL-enabled). With the WiGL-enabled receivers a few feet away from the transmitter network, this testing has proved that having multiple WiGL-enabled transmitters increases the current harvested at the single receiver. This exciting development reinforces the research and development done by FIU.

 

With improvements we’ve shared before, these additional enhancements from Cubic and Energous move us towards the overarching goal of creating a single touchless wireless power mesh network… supporting WiGL-enabled products. Once these enhancements are fully fleshed-out, we will be able to start realizing the full capabilities of the mesh network and branch out to determine the next steps forward for productization and strategic partnering.

In response to this recent Cubic success, WiGL and Energous are adding additional evaluation kits (transmitters and receivers) to grow the network. We expect to demonstrate a much larger, interoperable touchless wireless power transfer (tWPT) network very soon.

Thank you for your continued support, and we hope to provide you with more tWPT updates soon!

City of the Future

As the number of new and exciting internet of things (IoT) technologies on the market increase, so does the strain on the environment supplying the millions, billions, or even trillions of batteries necessary to power these IoT devices.

As WiGL has been promoting for years…, what if the IoT demand for batteries was made insignificant by creating Smart Cities with networked touchless wireless power transfer (tWPT)?

Smart Cities of the future is a concept in which societies invest in better, smarter and greener tWPT uses of energy. WiGL is a pioneer in the truly touchless wireless power networks. An we are honored to be featured with other wireless power pioneers in Nick’s article.

More information can be found here here regarding the ideal circumstances of tWPT powering IoT of the future, and how WiGL is planning to be a key player in that endeavor.

WiGL’s Makes News…Again

WiGL is continuously working towards our #1 goal of name dominance for all things wireless power by providing consumers with access to truly wireless and cordless electrical power.

We aim to get our network of wireless power transmitters into communities, buildings, hospitals, streetlights…anywhere and anything that can be networked to receive touchless wireless electrical power…making our lives easier. An important step in the process of building touchless wireless electrical power networks of the future is finding the right partners.

To that end, WiGL is actively aligning with pioneers in the wireless power industry to try and fully demonstrate the possibilities of our mesh network(s). In addition to our Department of Defense (DoD) contracts, WiGL has also aligned with multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to grow our combined strengths and improve the timeliness of OEM’s rapid product deployment for DoD and commercial needs.

An article was recently published about bringing WiGL’s vision into focus. If you’d like to explore these developments more, visit: Looking For An Outlet?

BREAKTHROUGH: WiGL + Energous

Partnering to Build Tomorrow:

Over the past year, WiGL has been working with the leading pioneers, competitors and teammates (“compete-mates”) in the wireless power industry to fast track WiGL enabled products to market.

We call these projects, Commercial-Off-the-Shelf, or WiGL’s COTS offerings.

We are proud to announce the first in a series of WiGL enabled COTS projects/products starting with Energous.

SEE ENERGOUS’ PRESS RELEASE BELOW:

“Energous Announces WiGL is Leveraging its WattUp Technology for Wireless Power Network Deployment”

https://ir.energous.com/news-events/press-releases/detail/718/energous-announces-wigl-is-leveraging-its-wattup-technology

WiGL is currently working with Energous (and others) to build COTS capabilities that fast-track transmitter (Tx)-to-Tx-to-Tx-to-Tx networking for touchless Wireless Power Transfer (tWPT). Meaning rather than a single Tx-to-receiver (Rx) pairing that gets you maybe 3-10 ft of distance, WiGL’s patented networking technologies are based on networking all available Tx’s in an attempt to gain near infinite distance on our tWPT networks. I.e…if you want more distance, simply add another WiGL-enabled Energous Tx.

In short, WiGL’s vision may one day allow you to use a WiGL-enabled Energous Tx to log onto a WiGL network…to remotely recharging or powering your IoT devices …in the very-near future.

We are excited to add Energous’ hardware technologies to WiGL networks.

Investing in Startups

One of the top 10 questions we get is… “why should I invest in a startup”?

WiGL’s go-to answer is because it only takes one good Startup investment to change your life. Sadly, there isn’t really a good science you can use to pick a winner.

But we thought it would be useful to share some pretty good references on why someone should invest in WiGL…or any other startup on StartEngine.com.

Here on the StartEngine platform (what the JOBS ACT calls a funding portal), there are great resources to help anyone new to startup investing:

Reference: https://www.startengine.com/blog/investing-in-startups-101/

 

Another good place to start, like everything else these days is Google.

Here’s WiGL’s perspective on startup investing, based on articles you can review online:

5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Startups

Reference: https://fullscale.io/blog/startup-investment/

 

1. Early Investment Means Greater Rewards

2. Diversifying Your Portfolio

3. Range of Options

4. Impact Investment

5. High Potential for Buy-Outs

 

These are five really good reasons to potentially expand your portfolio by investing in startups like WiGL.

Getting in early is always a plus and WiGL is a very early startup. Across StartEngine, there are a number of offerings…like WiGL…that are early enough to join as a very early investor (or maybe 1st round investor).  Likewise, having a wide variety of investments is also a tried-and-true method of growing your equity. Again, this is much more art than science.

But even with art, you want diverse groups of investments. While WiGL lands clearly in the technology space, there are other types and ranges of startups on StartEngine to fit nearly all risk tolerance levels. And many of the StartEngine offerings are like WiGL, in that we all potentially have the ability to improve the lives of billions of people.

Lastly, WiGL, and most offering on StartEngine started with the Exit in mind.

Clearly, there are a host of other pros and cons to investing in “anything”. Hopefully, this info has been useful and helps someone make the yes versus no decision on investing in WiGL or something else here on StartEngine.

Attention WiGL Wait-Listers

When WiGL’s Reg CF raise ended in the Summer of 2021, there were a number of people who did not get their investments in and processed before we reached the max allowed.

And over the past couple days, some of WiGL’s 2021 Reg CF wait-listers have reached out about “still” being on the previous rounds’ waitlist. So WiGL contacted StartEngine and we were informed there were over 200 people that missed that round (WOW).

Sadly, WiGL didn’t get to see the waitlist…so we had no idea. But thankfully, StartEngine is helping us ensure you will have an opportunity to be part of WiGL’s future.

In the coming days, StartEngine should be contacting you (via email) about joining the current Reg A+ round.

Like last raise, there has been tremendous support for WiGL and we want to ensure you are part of this round and never waitlisted again. Apologies to anyone who wanted to invest but were waitlisted due to WiGL hitting the SEC limit last round.

Please know we are working behind the scenes to ensure your investment request gets processed!

StartEngine FAQ

Q: Do you have any demos we can see of the product actually working? What is the total range and power transmission?

A: Please visit http://3.238.16.234/technology/ for info about WiGL Demos 1-4.

WiGL recently repeated demo #3 of our transmitter network at Synapse in Tampa, FL. There are also a couple TV and media videos on this page (e.g. Kathy Ireland show or FIU News).

The WiGL team is currently in the planning phase of very specific applications/devices for Demo #4 to meet Department of Defense end user requests.

*The products shown are internal parts of the prototypes not yet available to the general market. See Scientific Reports for Demo #3 Details:  https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-97528-5

 

Q: Is this the same as Energous technology?

A: No – WiGL is currently working with Energous and we consider them a close teammate, even though others may consider them our competitor. Our competi-mates’ business models appear to be making and selling a single transmitter (Tx) paired to one or more receivers (Rx) in an engineering developer kit (DevKits) for other companies build or test.

WiGL is currently working with these companies to build commercial -off-the-shelf (COTS) capabilities to fast track Tx-to-Tx-to-Tx-to-Tx “Networks” of touchless Wireless Power Transfer (tWPT). Meaning rather than a single COTS Tx-to-Rx pair that gets you maybe 3-10 ft of distance, WiGL’s patented technologies are based on connecting COTS Tx’s in an attempt to gain near infinite distance on our tWPT networks. I.e…”want more distance, add another WiGL-enabled Tx”.

We also hold patents that make additional advances in how the WPT industry can smartly use and control tWPT Tx’s.

WiGL is all about gaining tWPT distance by growing the Wireless electrical Grid of Local Area Networks (it’s in the name; “WiGL”).

In short, Energous and others have been pioneers to get more and more power/distance from their “single Tx” to the Rx’s as part of their DevKits. Whereas WiGL is leveraging advances in all available COTS WPT to build tWPT networks of wireless power….to meet end user needs.

In WiGL’s business model, we build specific applications of tWPT for the military and commercial end-users. We don’t currently have nor sell a DevKit.

 

Q: What is the effect of wireless electrical transmission on human tissue?

A: The FCC limits public exposure of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for devices. For example, Wireless Phones and Devices have a SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

For specific SAR info please visit the FCC Web Site: https://www.fcc.gov/general/specific-absorption-rate-sar-cellular-telephones.

WiGL recently published a paper promoting our suggestions for FCC oversight and the future of touchless Wireless Power Transfer (tWPT).

 

Q: How much wattage is WiGL capable of transmitting?

A: WiGL has demonstrated 2.4GHz at 1W. 


Most recently, we purchased and networked some COTS transmitters that put out 3W in the lower band. And one of our competi-mates has a 5W COTS transmitter.

WiGL’s Demo #4 is building a network of COTS (slightly WiGL enabled) and WiGL in-house transmitters tuned to 850-950MHz and 2.4GHz…all at 1W.

Q: When are products expected to hit the shelves?

A: As soon as WiGL is formally files our awarded, funded and executed Department of Defense (DoD) contract with the SEC…we will have a deliverables plan with dates and will be in a better position to answer when Military and Civilian WiGL capabilities will be ready. The proposed applications of WiGL for DoD devices have a direct correlation to commercial devices.

Q: The overview of your invention does not address the most important concerns of wireless energy transmission. Transmitting large amounts of power wirelessly is easy. It is a totally different thing when you claim to power refrigerators and TVs. Nobody wants to live near power towers. Yet you are proposing power transmitters all over the city?

A1. WiGL does NOT claim: “to power refrigerators and TV”. WiGL is proposing exactly the opposite. WiGL envisions using refrigerators and TVs (etc) as “transmitters” on the WiGL Network to recharge smaller devices’ receivers. Meaning, higher power devices that are plugged into the wall (the AC Grid)… can be repurposed to send/ transmit wireless power to smaller mobile devices. This is similar to how IoT is changing how we now add WiFi to toasters, microwaves, TVs, washers, garage doors, etc (stuff on the Grid). WiGL isn’t planning to power large high power devices…we are seeking to leverage grid-connected devices to build the touchless wireless transmitter network(s) of tomorrow.

A2. WiGL isn’t exactly “proposing power transmitters all over the city”. WiGL envisions repurposing existing electrical grid infrastructure that already radiates power; how many electrical sources are already in your City (that provide no IoT electrical power value to the end user)? WiGL hopes to marry our growing need for IoT technologies to existing systems on the power grid…by making your city’s electrical infrastructure smarter. WiGL wants to make existing products that already radiate energy…more effective/efficient for our 21st century IoT needs.

A3. So far our COTS and in-house demos have not “increased that power by orders of magnitude … to wirelessly transmit.” To date, WiGL and our partners have used 850-950 MHz (radio) or 2.4GHz (WiFi) at 1W. Well within FCC limits for radio/cellphone/WiFi transmissions. Some of our competi-mates who provided the WiGL-enabled COTS transmitters also sell transmitters radiating at 3-5W. Each of these COTS providers has FCC approvals. And there is growing science behind using 5G as the wireless energy source. 

 

Q: From the last round raised, what did the company do with the funds? Are there actual commercial products made that’s not a prototype. I only see the budget prototype of the product, which look a lot like high schoolers made them.

A1. The funds from the first round were used to move from prototypes to MVPs…and secure revenue generating contracts. Yes, our manufacturing partners and competi-mates have completed “some” of those MVPs and provided the transmitters and receiver products we mentioned in the Reg CF. There is a picture of one new MVP transmitter (product) on the page above. WiGL elected not to share images of the network or newest modifications to the WiGL or WiGL-enabled MVP receivers until we seek additional patents to protect new discoveries.

Many “products” make up a Wireless electrical grid of local area networks (WiGL). Meaning, some of the products used to make that full network are being provided by our competi-mates. And as we’ve shared, some of those products already exist. You or I can order these products online today.

The prototypes WiGL is demo’ing are truly prototypes. Yes they could look better, but they are not the MVPs. These are simply demo’ing that the tech works!

And at our demos, engineers want to see the internal subsystems and parts. They do not trust a closed pretty container is sending wireless power across the networks we propose…unless they see the boards and wiring for themselves. So sadly, the demo kits are not “Best buy or Walmart” quality.

Publishing in Scientific Reports has been both a gift and a curse. The article helped the engineering community to finally understood what WiGL was doing, but it also explained WiGL to other businesses who wanted to get into the wireless power space. Overnight, the whole far-field industry shifted to talking about “networking”.

So the images and demos you see on our websites are the older/known prototypes that we are comfortable sharing. Once we complete the network and patent the individual products for DoD (read as stuff from the Reg CF), we will be ready to share those approved images. But we have a responsibility to protect shareholder’s equity and WiGL’s trade secrets from competitors’ … we’re trying not to share too much too soon.
