At this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) a company demoed a device called Powermat. What this does for you is basically allow you to have a mat that you would lay your cell phone, your iPod, etc. on to have it get charged. You wouldn’t have to worry about having 2 cell phone chargers and an iPod charger plugged in creating that nice wire rat’s nest we all know and love. A small scale version doing what was described here should be on sale later this year.
Future products could be “hotspot” areas on you kitchen counter for appliances, areas on your bedroom wall for your LCD TV, etc. Pretty cool, huh?
