Disney Invention Could Power Up to 320 Mobile Devices

The quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR), uses magnetic
fields to transmit power to mobile devices.  It was
developed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at Disney's
research lab.
Question to readers: Is this technology safe, as Disney claims: "The currents are safe to humans because they are channeled through specialized conductors which soak up any harmful electrical fields...  The Disney team found this room was safe, even for people with pacemakers and other implanted electronics."

The room that charges your gadgets using THIN AIR: Disney invention could power up to 320 mobile devices

  • Disney Research has developed a method similar to Wi-Fi to transmit power 
  • The method, called quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR), uses magnetic fields
  • Researchers at Pittsburgh lab charged 10 batteries inside 5-by-5ft room
  • Claim that at maximum capability, technology could wirelessly charge up to 320 devices at a time
  • Neither humans nor furniture would be affected by the power currents

It may be best known for its children's films, but Disney is trying its hand at wireless charging technology.

The firm is working on technology similar to Wi-Fi that can power upmobile devices without the need for wires.

So far researchers have successfully tested the method, charging 10 batteries inside a five-by-five meter room, and claim the technology could charge up to 320 devices at a time.

The technology, called quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR), uses magnetic fields to transmit power to mobile devices, and is being developed by scientists at Disney's research lab in Pittsburgh.

Alanson Sample, lab director and principal research scientist at Disney Research, said: 'This new innovative method will make it possible for electrical power to become as ubiquitous as WiFi.

'This in turn could enable new applications for robots and other small mobile devices by eliminating the need to replace batteries and wires for charging.'

The technology works by running electrical currents in metal walls, the floor and the ceiling of a room, Live Science reported.

This in turn generates magnetic fields that can travel across the room's interior.

Power currents form when the magnetic waves are then transmitted to coils that operate on the same frequency.

But the currents are safe to humans because they are channeled through specialized conductors which soak up any harmful electrical fields. The same goes for furniture and other objects.

'In this work, we've demonstrated room-scale wireless power, but there's no reason we couldn't scale this down to the size of a toy chest or up to the size of a warehouse,' said Dr Sample.
