Wireless electric vehicle charging installed in the garage and at work means people could simply go about their business the exact same way they do today but would almost always have a fully-charged car when they pull out of their special parking spot. It's better than gas!
WiTricity, who makes magnetic resonance EV chargers, recently acquired technology and IP assets from its former competitor Qualcomm Halo. As part of the deal, Qualcomm Halo will now become a minority WiTricity shareholder. With that deal, WiTricity says that it now owns or controls over 1,500 patents and patent applications that are related to wireless charging.
