Future Ultrabooks to automatically pair and charge devices within range.
We’ve all been there – that crucial few minutes where we run around like lunatics looking for a spare power socket or charger to plug our dying phone into.
Intel however, hopes to change that. In a blog post the company announced that they’re looking at wireless technology being developed for them by Integrated Device Technology, Inc. The system, dubbed simply “Wireless Charging Technology” would be implemented in future Intel Ultrabooks, and would allow users to place a device such as a mobile phone within an inch of an Ultrabook to wirelessly charge it. No cables, no special mats, nothing.
It’s certainly an ambitious piece of technology, one that Intel have yet to determine when it will be introduced into its Ultrabook lineup.
