This technology pertains to a hub that would transmit power through electromagnetic waves throughout the entire building, powering wireless devices that would no longer need to rely on their batteries and chargers for powering the devices. This technology already exists, and has a history dating back to Nikola Tesla. Two objects resonating at the same frequency, can transmit an enormous amount of electricity, and with a hub, the power can originate from a central point. The technology could be created in a way that it is directional, so that the connections that originate from the hub are directed in the exact position of the device, as detected by a wireless signal that is sent out by the device saying that it needs power. This could cut down on loss of power that isn’t being used by any devices, or the hub could completely turn off when it is no longer needed, such as at night in a home. It would detect when it is needed, and turn back on.
