In New Zealand tested the world’s first system of wireless transmission of energy

Company Powerco, the second largest distributor of gas and electricity in New Zealand, has provided startup Emrod opportunities to test innovative means of transmitting energy without wires. Currently there is only a prototype of such a transmitter and developers will require about six months of work in the laboratory before they proceed to field experiments. Probably by the time Emrod agree to explain the principle of operation of your device – no details not open.

So what Emrod managed to attract the attention of Powerco? Prospects – in particular, the developers of the system claim that it has no fundamental limitations on the volume of transmitted energy. Distance and is limited only by line of sight range – it is only necessary to position transmitting and receiving antennas facing each other and can work.

Technology uses to transmit microwave radiation, the system operates in a wide frequency range, consistent with the New Zealand authorities. The antenna radiation is not ionizing, it does not take harm to the environment and does not interfere. But, for greater security, each session is accompanied by the work of the signal laser beam of low power that determines the interference on the transmission line and automatically terminate its work.

The main scope of its development in Emrod called the area of green energy, as is often the generating facilities are located far away from the direct consumer. Wireless energy transmission will help to expedite and cheapen the process of delivery to customers. It is possible that this technology will make a revolution, and humanity refuses to create bulky batteries, electricity in favor of lightweight wireless transmitters.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
