Assuming the world doesn’t come to an end in 2012, we may see the next step in recharging batteries wirelessly.
You may have seen inductance chargers like the one built into the Palm Pre. Fujitsu’s technology, however, does not require the devices touch. It can work across a gap as large as 15 cm (a bit less than 6 inches).
Things could get interesting in the battery charging area in 2012. Of course, gadget manufacturers will have to buy into the technology and integrate without requiring custom cases before wireless charging of any kind takes off.
