A New TV That Uses Wireless Power System

The electronics maker Haier demonstrated a new kind of TV in a Consumer Electronics Show that uses a wireless power system reducing the clutter behind the TV. Wireless electricity is a nascent technology but not more and more electronics companies are taking interest in eliminating the cables lying around in your home. Wireless TV is the new entry. There are already several wireless electricity providers such as Power Mat which provides equipment to charge phones, iPods and iPhones with a single charging mat.

Haier’s wireless TV is not available in the market yet but it is an indication of what is coming. Televisions have already gotten ultra slim and can produce HD video without using very little space in your living room. However, TVs are still somewhat “wired” and you connect the DVD players, power cords and other cables although you could use some costly alternatives to reduce to the clutter to some extent. It is a good sign that manufacturers are coming up with electronics without cables.

The wireless power system was supplied to Haier was developed by Witricity. Power transfer is made possible through a coil on the back of the TV that receives power from another device plugged into a wall socket that resonates and the energy is transferred using a magnetic near field.

This TV also features Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI), which can stream 1080p content at 3 Gbps. It works at distances up to about 100 feet away. So there’s no need for video input cables either. The company did not provide a time-line for a consumer release. It appears it may take 6 months to an year before you can purchase it for your home.

This product was chosen to receive a 2010 CES “Product of the Future Award” from POPULAR SCIENCE.

    Yeah sure Pratik they will give you the details to a trade secret so you can go and steal the idea. Why not just give you the schematics while they are at it. Go find out on your own use your brain, I figured it out. Hint it uses magnets and look up Tesla.

    I’m writing a paper on wireless energy transfer for my EET 251 class and I don’t want to know any secrets or anything but if there is anything that someone can help me out on I’d appreciate it it’s due 4/30/12 thanks btw this is very cool

    This is a good start….. Imagine, other gadgets will be charging wirelessly, appliances operating wirelessly….. Sounds really good… Will it harm our body due to magnetic resonance? Keep in mind that our nervous system somewhat runs on electric currents…. Can this technology be used as a weapon to paralyze somebody with the right frequency? Resonance, electricity, magnetic field, nervous system… I’ll wait maybe 5 years after it’s on the market.

    Age old technology. Glad to see equipment makers are finally deciding adapt Tesla’s ideas. Most of the Wow-tech has been sitting on the shelf for decades.
