Wireless charging, while still not widely adopted by OEMs, is definitely the way of the future. Nokia seems to be into making more inroads into the standard, hopefully making it possible to use ambient, atmospheric electrical energy to charge it’s smart phones. In a research partnership with the University of South Hampton, Nokia has released a video showing
ground-breaking, proof-of-concept research into harnessing the power of lightning for personal use, an industry first that could potentially see consumers tap one of nature’s significant energy sources to charge their devices in a sustainable manner
The old adage, “Lightning Never Strikes Twice” comes to mind, but it’s an interesting concept just the same.
