|CES 2010 RCA
Airnergy - WiFi Energy Harvester
Kortney: Hi everyone, It is day four we are on the RCA booth and I am
standing here with [Inaudible] [00:00:21] new battery called "Airnergy"
he is going to talk to us about it as it seems like its going to save us
money and power and all sorts of things.
Interviewee: It is going to be the coolest thing you have ever scene.
The reality of it is, is that surrounding is this energy, all kinds of
energy WiFi energy, light energy, heat and all of those things are
energy and any kind of energy can be transferred into any other kind of
energy, the question is can you do it cost effectively and can you do in
a form factor that makes sense? And what we have got is a brand new
technology that takes the WiFi signal out of the air and transfers that
energy from WiFi into electrical power and that electrical power will
charge your cell phone at any given time. Today it’s a small device
that’s charging its taking energy out of the air and it´s charging and
you just plug it in the USB port on your phone and would charge.
Ultimately we are going to be able to build them right into the battery
that goes in your phone. So anywhere you go where there is WiFi active
it´s going to be charging your phone.
Kortney: You know this is going to hard to believe for a lot of people
because we can´t wrap our minds around that that concept how long with
USB will it take to charge?
Interviewee: It’s a relatively low power thing, but since there is WiFi
around all the time it´s going to be charging you all the time its going
to be topping up your battery all the time. We have a partnership we
work with US government and a lot of technologies that are being
developed for use by government throughout the world, whether its
military or NASA or any of the agencies they are investing a technology
all the time and we have a partnership with US government where we bring
in companies that are developing technologies. We take those and figure
out ways to commercialize for use for the consumer.
Kortney: Do you have any idea when this product will be released?
Gary Shapiro: The expectation is later this year.
Kortney: All right. Well I am going to work on turning some [Inaudible]
[00:02:07] energy into my own because I needed to get through the rest
of day four at CES right thanks again for joining us.
Interviewee: thank you it´s my [Voice Crossover].
Kortney: For Solid Signal TV I am Kortney.
