What is it?
WiTricity is an emerging technology that will enable hardware devices to receive electricity wirelessly. The technology uses coupling between electromagnetic resonant objects, and has proven to charge a 60 watt light bulb using two 5-turn copper coils of 24 in, that were 7 ft away, at roughly 45% efficiency.

Because WiTricity uses copper coils, many are speculating that there will be a rise in demand for copper worldwide. In addition, there is also speculation that GE will align with MIT to incorporate WiTricity into new product lines.
