Samsung Electronics is working on creating a stationary hub to recharge mobile devices at a distance. This is reported by phoneArena with reference to the website of the World Intellectual Property Organization, which registered the patent of the South Korean vendor with the relevant content.
It follows from the description of the invention that the development will work on the principle of a router. When plugged into an outlet, the hub will continuously transmit the electricity converted into radio frequencies. All compatible devices in the range of its operation will be able to connect to the hub for recharging.
Samsung does not specify how much power will be issued by the charging station, but hints that it will be enough to cover a regular room. The connection will be maintained regardless of obstacles such as furniture and people in the room and even when moving the device from place to place.
Earlier, the development of a charging station that did not require direct contact with a charged device, announced the start-up Energous Corporation. The engineers of the company abandoned the induction technology, calling this method obsolete, and focused on the principles of converting electricity into a radio signal.
