Scientists have found a way to wirelessly transmit electricity to a nearby moving object.
The method may have applications in transportation, medical devices, and more. If electric cars could recharge while driving down a highway, for example, it would virtually eliminate concerns about their range and lower their cost, perhaps making electricity the standard fuel for vehicles.
Except it is not new at all. It is in fact over a 100 years old and was invented by Nikola Tesla (he used moving lights to demonstrate wireless power transfer). But nonetheless the concept is a good one for EV's.
