The inventor who may kill the power cord

Claire Teninges's curator insight, August 2, 5:34 AM

Here's how it works. uBeam's transmitter is a wafer-thin square the size of a salad plate that punches out ultrasonic frequencies much like a speaker creates sound. The receiver, currently in the form of a smartphone case, resonates at the same high frequency and turns that imperceptible movement into energy, charging the phone.

uBeam's transmitter doesn't go through walls, so a square tile is required for each room. Although uBeam is still a few years from being consumer-ready, Perry is convinced her "competitively priced" creation will find its way into our homes and any commercial space where devices are used.  

According to CEO Meredith Perry  "What I've seen over the years is people making tiny improvements in existing technology as opposed to saying, 'Let's throw this all out and do something new,'" she says. "I know the odds are so against me. But I wouldn't start a company and bust my (rear) for years unless we were working on something orders of magnitude better than anything else out there."
