FCC Approves First Distance Wireless Charging System

Energous Watt Up

WattUp can also charge multiple devices at the same time from a distance of up to three feet.

WattUp wire-free, power-at-a-distance charging technology has been given Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification of its first-generation WattUp Mid Field transmitter, which sends focused, RF-based power to devices at a distance. WattUp is being marketed as the world's first "over-the-air, power-at-a-distance" system, meaning that your phone will automatically start charging as long as it's within close proximity of the WattUp Mid Field transmitter. This wireless charging tech routes power to different devices nearly magically.

In addition to the plant, the officers also confiscated processed product, including containers described as "concentrated THC". The Jirons now face felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp.

The newly-approved system, called WattUp, uses radio frequencies to transmit power to devices like smartphones and watches. Energous hasn't yet specified the wireless standard involved in the process. That means a WhattUp-enabled device would be compatible with a transmitter made by some other manufacturer.

Another more promising technology, "Rezence", does "magnetic resonance" charging and allows a greater degree of freedom in regards to where you can place your devices. I take that to mean, if you want to sit a WattUp transmitter under your monitor and have it constantly recharging your wireless keyboard, mouse, smartwatch, earbuds, fitness tracker, and nearby smartphone, you'll be fine. According to the company, its wireless charges can charge the surrounding devices up to three feet away.

Khloe Kardashian confirms pregnancy
Aside from welcoming a new baby next year, Khloe and Tristan are reportedly planning on buying a new house in Los Angeles. The blonde beauty then made her first public appearance since the announcement on Saturday, as she was spotted at LAX.

"WattUp from Energous represents an incredibly positive lifestyle change", said Martin Cooper, Energous Board of Directors member and "Father of the Cell Phone" - a pioneer and visionary of the wireless industry. The technology will allow devices to be charged without requiring physical contact with a charging pad like most current wireless charging options require. The company has not yet launched its system yet but instead intends on showcasing it at the CES 2018, which will be held mid-January in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Twitter reacts to Kobe Bryant leaving own jersey retirement game early
Bryant apparently had a good reason for bolting before the game ended. "I kind of go back and forth", Bryant said with a sly grin. I looked up to that man as a player for so long and he's such a talent, but an even better competitor.
