It’s always exciting to see what new products are released at CES every year. This year, one of the standouts is Ossia’s new Cota Ceiling Tiles, which can wirelessly charge your electronic devices within a 30 foot range. The tiles use a transmitter and a receiver, and the receivers are small enough to embed into smartphones and other battery-powered electronics, like smoke alarms and speakers. Ossia intends to sell this technology to smartphone manufacturers, and is in talks with a major car manufacturer about installing this technology in car ceilings. If this device goes big, it means that as soon as you walk into a room with these ceiling tiles, or get into a car with this technology, your phone will start charging!
Technology is pretty dang cool.
