The world disposes of 40 billion batteries each year; many lay corroding in dumps, polluting ground water. And take one look under your desk and you might get an idea of how entangled the world is in electric wire...

Sounds interesting. Question is what the downsides are of all this ambient energy, for health, radiation, even fire safety.

Tesla was robbed. Let's hope this proves safe and productive. And, yes, I want to get rid of my wires as well.

I think a lot of health research regarding magnetic fields needs to be done 1st.

Very interesting, Frans. I'm not so sure about this, though: "What’s more, the technology is safe because it relies on magnetic waves which are already a integral part of life on earth." We've heard that many times before and after long research it proved unsafe after all. Studies in Holland have shown that people (especially children) can get ill if they live very close to a large electricity pylon.
