A cordless future for electricity?

Electronics such as phones and laptops may start shedding their power cords within a year.

That's the prediction of Eric Giler, CEO of WiTricity, a company that's able to power light bulbs using wireless electricity that travels several feet from a power socket.

WiTricity's version of wireless electricity -- which converts power into a magnetic field and sends it sailing through the air at a particular frequency -- still needs to be refined a bit, he said, but should be commercially available soon.  (Source: John D. Sutter, CNN)

The big question is about how much power will be lost during the transmission of the power.  Also, I hope that we can still charge 2 devices next to each other however I expect that we may need some space between them so that the magnetic fields do not interfere with them. - Chris De Herrera.
