  • Hi Anthony, Have you decided to focus on the wireless electricity idea? I think that could be quite cool, and could lead to the creation of many interesting new products that could be of significant social value. I was taking a look again at the article in Popular Science that discusses Witricity. Would it be possible, based on what you know about this technology, to create medical devices and other very small, low power devices, that relied on this method for transmitting power in cases where it is inconvenient (or impossible) to replace a battery? Like the inside of your body? There must be tons of articles and websites out there deal with various applications of this technology. I would love to see you pull off a really well-researched thesis which presents a portable, affordable, easy-to-use, ergonomically clever design that demonstrates a great new application for "Witricity" Thanks for turning me on that.
