I agree, DRGONZO. It was certainly exciting to see this young man present his project and to see the next generation of engineers at work. I particular appreciated his desire to be innovative by looking for ways to improve the project.

Thank you.  I have many more projects and I plan to submit some of them this summer.

Thanks.  The wireless charger and coils I used delivered about 12V, so you could charge almost anything.  The current, however, is pretty low, so it takes a long time to charge batteries.  If you have any improvements to the power output capability or efficency of the design, I'd love to see them.

Great job, John. In the next few years, the world's going to need a lot of engineers, like yourself, who are comfortable with LED technology. Very impressive!

Mr. Duffy, it is up to YOU to discover that breakthrough for fast charging.  I hope you do; you could be the person who finally gets all-electric vehicles into the mainstream.  Nothing we've seen to date has done a good job of this.

It would be nice to say "we saw him here first!"

I have gotten a slightly more powerful version (as in the video) but the main problem is that the coil's inductive resistence is high enough that no matter how much current I make avaliable, the current used is still usually below a few amps.  The secondary coil is just a few miliamps.

Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
The big picture to this hands-on technology curriculum is to illustrate to students that the future of IoT and IoE (Internet of Everything) development can be created in today’s classroom.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
