Wireless Sources Might One Day Charge Electric Vehicles as They Move

Stanford researchers transmitted a 1 milliwatt charge to a moving LED lightbulb — a feat that they hope can be scaled up to power electric vehicles on a roadway.

S S tanford University researchers claim they wirelessly transmitted electricity between moving objects around three feet apart — an advance that could significantly extend the reach of electric cars and yield other practical applications, like powering mobile phones and pacemakers.
