uBeam Shows Off Futuristic Wireless Charging Tech
An American company, uBeam, became known in the world of Silicon Valley to develop a wireless charging system that works with ultrasound waves. However, until today the company had avoided making public demonstrations of its technology.
But, recently the American company, uBeam shows off Futuristic wireless charging tech to the public for the first time.
The company has been a mystery all this time. Many have criticized for not discussing in detail its prototype or make public demonstrations. However, it seems that uBeam has finally decided to show its 100% wireless charging technology and it looks like it really works.
As noted by The Verge, Meredith Perry (CEO), first showed the prototype developed by uBeam works during the Summit technology Upfront event held in Los Angeles, California. Perry had clarified that it was a private demonstration, something really difficult to achieve since within few the hour several videos began to appear on Twitter.

As you can see in the video, Meredith Perry holds what appears to be an Android phone near a device with uBeam technology and wait a few seconds before loading a symbol appears on the screen. The surprise of those present did not wait for applause towards what could become a truly revolutionary technology.
How wireless charging technology works with uBeam?
According to the American company, uBeam, they are building “energy infrastructure of the future,” helping to stop once and for all the cables to charge our electronic devices. It certainly promises to be a great innovation in the field.
Now, how does this technology really work? The company, on its website, explains that it all starts with a transmitter that emits ultrasound waves. It works like a speaker, but instead of making an audible sound, it transmits a high-frequency sound safe for people and pets.
These ultrasound waves are transmitted through the air with a range of several meters and can be detected by an electronic device (such as our mobile phone) to reconvert it into electrical energy that allows recharging the device.
Finally, the challenge that uBeam faces are to be credible, and this is because the company has never clearly shown, until today, if the technology it has developed really works.
But there is no doubt that this technology will be a revolutionary technology and will allow a huge change in how we use and recharge our electronic devices. So, what do you think about this new tech? Simply share your views and thoughts in the comment section below.
