We are embracing the future of electric cars and apparently, the electric vehicle market has gained enough interest from car manufacturers and everyone is gearing up their Research and Development to come up with the next big thing in the market.
So we were stoked when Stuff reported that, “A leading mobile phone company has bought into world-beating technology from Auckland for wirelessly charging electric cars.”
Wireless charging in electric cars is a technological revolution that has the probability of changing our tech world the way Apple did.
Wireless giant Qualcomm has jumped into the electric vehicle market by acquiring the assets of a company called HaloIPT out of New Zealand that has developed wireless electric car charging tech. HaloIPT, a company that commercialized research from The University of Auckland, uses wireless induction for charging and has created a device or mat that an electric car drives over (or drives near), and which can wirelessly charge the car without it plugging in.

We are in the adjunct of very exciting times as the world turns the tide and embraces cleaner energy and sleeker cars.
We can see that this will be the future of our children and it is good.
