Size is no longer an issue – the device can take the form of a wristband or thumb-drive, and stretched to a larger size to answer a call or send off an e-mail.

Transmitting power wirelessly is just the first step to getting rid of cords, looking for outlets, or charging your batteries anywhere you are. While Intel isn’t the only company working on it, it is fun to see.
