Best Enabling Technology: Wysips
While others are tackling wireless charging with inductive pads in combination with a special (read: bulky) battery cover or sleeve, Wysips has a brighter idea for wireless power. This company’s photovoltaic film for displays will allow handsets and other devices to charge using the sun’s rays or indoor lighting. Wysips is working with display film and LCD makers, phone manufacturers, and carriers to integrate this exciting technology within the next 12 months or so. If Wysips succeeds, you may never need to use a physical charger again.
