MIT team powers light bulb without wires

“In a perfect world, there’d be no wires. They clutter the view, get tangled behind desks and limit how far networks can reach. That’s why the telegraph gave way to the radio. Cell phones unstrung telecommunications. Wi-Fi liberated computer data.

Now even the last knotty wire that seemed destined to remain – the power cord – could be on its way out.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers announced Thursday they had made a 60-watt light bulb glow by sending it energy wirelessly, potentially previewing a future in which cell phones and other gadgets get juice without having to be plugged in.

The breakthrough, disclosed in Science Express, an online publication of the journal Science, is being called “WiTricity” by the scientists.”

Microsoft Surface

Microsoft Surface represents a new trend to come with the way we all interact with digital content. With Surface you can easily grab data with your hands and move information between objects with simple gestures and touches of the screens surface. Surface features a 30 inch tabletop display which allows for multiple users to work independently or simultaneously together without using a mouse or keyboard. Mandy has a great video on her blog of Microsoft Surface in action and the most interesting feature I saw was the ability to easily extract information for a mobile deviceƂ to another mobile or share it online with just a touch of the screen. Of course a bigger 60 or 70 inch would be make it easier to use with multiple users. No word on the cost but is it set to be released in Winter of 2007
