We want wireless everything. But most examples of wireless electricity using induction are just experimental. One vaporous promise just came true: Powermat, a thin platform on which you place three of your favorite gadgets and they charge up as if by magic. Get out your $100 for the charger, and $40 for each one of the cases you place on a device, which makes the miracle happen.
This is a painless way to charge up the iPhone. We can see placing a Powermat on a nightstand, or on a landing strip table just inside the door, and all we have to do is plunk our phones down on it and they are suddenly charging with no wires required. Now that's convenience. Best of all, they are for real, now available at Best Buy and Target.
