DVD Memories Preserved

The main benefit Energous touts is mobility, and true to his word, Leabman was able to move freely around the show home, with the software automatically choosing which transmitter was best-placed to pipe power to his smartphone. The handover was near-instantaneous, and very reminiscent of how a tablet or laptop can switch between WiFi transmitters on the fly. Because there aren’t yet any devices that directly integrate the WattUp technology, the phones were receiving power through modified battery cases, and there was no wearable demo on offer. With the size of the chips, though, there’s nothing stopping a Samsung or an Apple from adding the tech to its devices in the coming years. These are early days for Energous. It’s made a lot of progress since its formation in 2012, shrinking its transmitters from the size of a coffee table to that of an oversized router. Instead of producing and managing routers, chips and software itself, it’s looking to license it out to other companies to integrate into their devices.
