We experimented with wireless power transmission. Using copper coils, power can be transmitted several feet in all directions efficiently. A pair of coils will exchange energy while having little effect on other objects around them. Our project builds off the ideas of Nikola Tesla and a research team at MIT. This research may one day lead to laptops, cell phones, and other devices being powered wirelessly.
