Isis touts wearable, wireless charging and data transfer
Isis Innovation has announced what it claims is a simple, safe and inexpensive technology to power and charge everyday electrical devices whilst simultaneously exchanging data without the need for cables.
The technology, developed in Oxford, is said to allow users to wirelessly power and exchange data over distance using simple and inexpensive engineering.
This has been done through metamaterials recently discovering properties of artificial magnetic resonators that support magneto-inductive waves. Isis said this allowed the rapid transfer of power and data between electronic devices without the use of conventional, limiting technologies.
Benefits include no wires or cables as well as a cheap and simple manufacturing process. Researchers also claim there is no limit to the number of connected devices and no
vulnerable connectors to disconnect.
The technology is said to be weatherproof, can be woven into flexible materials and integrated into furniture, walls and flooring. One way to do this is by incorporating the technology behind the screen of a computer monitor, digital files, photos and music, which could be transferred to and from a USB stick simply by tapping the flash drive against an appropriate on-screen icon.
Laptops, mobile phones, cameras, printers and media devices can all charge and communicate with one another from a table top integrated with the Oxford metamaterial.
This technology, the company says, could prove essential in offices, homes, consumer electronics, medical devices and social outlets.
The theory is the architecture of computers and other electrical devices requiring microprocessors and circuit boards connected to peripheral devices can be entirely reengineered using infinitely interchangeable - and therefore recyclable - components manufactured as self-contained units.
This will increase product life while reducing cost, carbon footprint and wastage. The company is currently in the process of discussing licensing the technology.
