“No more searching for that elusive, functioning outlet in the airport to charge your dying cell phone as you wait to board, or worrying about your laptop dying during an important presentation.
That’s what one Virginia-based company envisions. The concept is to get your electric power wirelessly just as you get access to the internet wirelessly.
Wireless power is the focus of WiGL, or Wireless-electric Grid Local Air Networks. The idea is to bring WiGL (pronounced wiggle) networks to local communities so there is no more frantic searching for outlets, blocks, or cords.”
