Russian innovators have created a universal wireless charging for mobile devices W.IRA (wireless impulse resonance accumulator). The domestic unit is more convenient than what the Americans and Japanese are developing.
Charging W.IRA — small pyramid with a wire that still need to stick to the wall outlet. But he is one — then no wires are required. In a pyramid built emitting device, which due to the pulsed signal at a frequency of 0.7 to 1 MHz charges batteries gadgets within a radius of 30 cm There are now smartphones and tablets W.IRA just not a charge, but to change the gadget is not necessary — enough to stick RFID -mark on the battery. Such prototypes are manufactured in the company. Innovation W.IRA safe, as it uses the principle of a standing wave, and the next 30 cm radiation is not. In the passive state, the device emits nothing at all, and in the active wave moves only in the direction of the recipient of energy.
Charging technology phones without wires are now looking around the world, this process includes the leading manufacturers of phones, batteries, high schools, up to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2009 he founded the International Wireless Power Consortium, bringing together manufacturers worldwide. But the developed devices share one thing — this is the substrate-mats, which should place the phone. And the mats are not tiny, the size of the same plate, and they charge a single device. A pyramid W.IRA fits in your pocket and can charge up to three devices simultaneously. So far the only smart phones and tablets, but in the future inventors plan to extend the application of the child to cameras, laptops and even the batteries of electric vehicles. As mentioned above foreign projects, W.IRA is at the prototype stage.
W.IRA — the result of broad cooperation inventors and businesses. The main laboratory is located in Moscow. Strategic partner of the project — Zelenograd factory "Angstrom", which, in particular, can produce RFID-tags. Employees of the Department of Circuit SUT Bonch-Bruyevich, who graduated from the Project Manager Alexander Atmans, exploring sources of supply, and in fact created the technology. Employees of the Department of Radio Physics and Nanotechnology KubSU investigates the effect of radio waves on living organisms and W.IRA checked for safety.
However, not all problems are solved in the first place with the legislation. What kind permission of the relevant government agencies need to work in the frequency range of 1 MHz, a young entrepreneur Alexander Atmans not yet studied.
Venture financier, member of the Board of Directors of the Criminal Code "Savings and Investments" Oleg Dyachenko sees above all the market risks. "Out of this technology to market themselves strongly hindered. It is a mass consumer product, and hence on its promotion to 100-200 million dollars. W.IRA need a major-manufacturer, which could include the item in its developed distribution system. " Dyachenko suggests paying attention to the Asian manufacturers, particularly for Samsung, and HTC.
But as long as the fate of W.IRA going well. The project won the Innovation Convention in 2011, a few days ago, Alexander Atmans received a special prize "Telecom Idea", which holds the MTS. Dyachenko said that W.IRA have to try and be a resident of Skolkovo.
