The other day @ CES, Fulton Innovation unveiled the world’s first wirelessly powered Tesla car.
As you can see from the image below, the electric car is parked about 4? over an eCoupled-enabled pad. Once the car is fully charged, it will run for 180 miles. The car’s charging status can be monitored by an iPhone app, of course.
“This is the first time in history that we’ve been able to wirelessly power a high-powered device,” said a rep at Fulton Innovation, the company behind the wireless technology.
We’re getting one step closer to the end of plugging in. Imagine a future of roads, paved with wireless technology. Imagine parking garages equipped to power entire fleets overnight. Imagine it in your own garage.
