Today’s going to be a great day. We’re making progress on the project.1 Our plan:
- Print prior art and put in a binder
- Review prior art
- Decide on prototype
- Buy materials for prototype
- Build prototype
- Smoke test prototype
- Experiment with prototype
Print prior art and put in a binder
Review prior art
So much for this being a quick process. Instead, we just found a bunch more to review, this time at YouTube.
- Wireless Electricity (for under $20) and epower’s YouTube channel
- The Gadget Show – Wireless Electricity
- Wireless Energy Transfer
- Intel Seattle’s Wireless Energy Project
- MIT Physics Demo — Inductor Radio
Also interesting is MIT’s “Goodbye wires!” which links to a PDF of their paper, “Efficient wireless non-radiative mid-range energy transfer.”
Decide on prototype
It’s hard to beat cheap, so we’re going to attempt the Wireless Electricity (for under $20) project, though that cost estimate seems to assume already having a stocked experimenter’s lab. This is sending us down the bifilar winding rat hole and into Tesla territory. A lot of strange stuff (and denizens) there.
Buy materials for prototype
That starts tomorrow.
But wait — there’s more
