With the advent of Ultrabooks, Intel gave Windows the necessary support it needed to bring the fight to the MacBook Air. Now, it’s inductive wireless charging‘s turn to get the push it so badly needs.
Demoed on video here is Intel’s new baby, a wireless charging kit, hooked up to an Acer Aspire Ultrabook and a Samsung smartphone at Computex 2012:
As you can see, it’s very simple to use, and more importantly, doesn’t take up much space.
The obvious downside is that your smartphone will eat away at your Ultrabook’s battery. But at least you can do away with having to tote around multiple chargers.
No word though if and when this will go into commercial production, but when it does, you can bet we’ve got our eye peeled on this one. For now, just treat this as a heads up that such tech exists, and it also wouldn’t hurt to start praying that it becomes available for a number of laptops and smartphones sooner rather than later, and at a very reasonable price too.
