Wireless ElectricityTransmission By Rakesh & praveen GITAS.
The first mover and innovator Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943) “Nikola Tesla, the eccentric - and unbelievably under-rated - genius known as the ‘wild man of electronics’, was without doubt one of the greatest minds in the history of the human race.”• Born in Austro-Hungary (now Croatia) in 1856, Tesla constructed his first induction motor in 1883 and immigrated to America in 1884 - arriving in New York with worldly goods totaling four cents, a pocket full of poems, carefully worked calculations for a flying machine, and a head full of strange dreams.• Tesla began working with Thomas Edison, but the two men were worlds apart in both their science and cultures (the fact that Teslas alternating-current concept posed a direct threat to sales of Edisons direct-current devices probably didnt help) and they soon went their separate ways.• Tesla invented the alternating-current generator that provides your light and electricity, the transformer through which it is sent, and even the high voltage coil of your picture tube. The Tesla Coil, in fact, is used in radios, television sets, and a wide range of other electronic equipment - invented in 1891, no-ones ever come up with anything better.• Letting Tesla go wasnt the brightest thing Edison had up the patent rights to ever done, though - George Westinghouse promptly snapped Teslas alternating-current motors, dynamos, and transformers. The buy-out triggered a power struggle which eventually saw Edisons direct-current systems relegated to second place, and the DC motors installed in German and Irish trains only a few years before, rendered obsolete.
The forgotten invention is reborn in 2007The idea of wireless electricity has beenaround since the early days of the Teslacoil. But thanks to a group of MITscientists, "WiTricity" (as these scientistscall it) is now one step closer to practicalreality.Demonstrating the ability to power a 60-watt light bulb from a power source sevenfeet away without wires might not seemlike the most impressive of feats, but thetechnology behind it has massiveimplications for how we live our tech-filled, power-hungry lives. Imagine a daywhen your laptop, MP3 or player areconstantly charged by power sent throughthe air via an electromagnetic field.
How it would look and work in your office or bedroom + = A Starbucks where you can use the restroom for free, use their Wi Fi for free and get a quick charge for your cell phone all without buying a “venti white chocolate mocha” for $4.00 plus tax.
WWW.SPLASHPOWER.COMSplashpower Ltd. is a United Kingdom-basedcompany founded in June 2001. It has beenattempting to develop technology for wirelesscharging of portable devices such as mobilephones, personal digital assistants, mp3 playersand cameras. Their system works throughelectromagnetic induction, adding a freepositioning induction loop (at the “SplashPad") tothe conventional fix induction loop at the wallplug (used to shift between AC and DC currents).According to the companys claims, rechargeabledevices equipped with a small Splash Module areplaced upon a mouse pad-sized SplashPad andhave their batteries recharged at a normal rate.(Wikipedia)

Incremental or Disruptive• We believe wireless electricity incremental because it was innovated at the end of the 1800’s and only last year it was improved to a new technology.• We can also say that it may become disruptive because if a strong enough product is developed it will wipe out the demand for chargers. Therefore charging will become universal. What it will replace • Batteries • Cords
