Intel To Incorporate Wireless Charging Into Future Laptops
Wireless charing coming to future laptops...
Intel is hoping to bring to laptops, something quite different from its usual line of processors… Wireless Charging Technology (WCT) for laptops and smartphones.
The technology basically charges any compatible cell phone wirelessly, from any WCT-enabled laptop or ultrabook running the WCT detection software.
Intel claims that the WCT will be able to provide enough power for a dead smartphone to make it through the afternoon.

The chipsets will be developed by Integrated Device Technology, and should ready to go early 2013. No word on when we’ll actually see the technology in devices though, perhaps we’ll get more word at CES 2013.
