Pi Wireless Charging
Pi, a startup founded by an MIT alumni, has demonstrated a new kind of wireless charger that can recharge devices over a distance.
A base station sits at the center of this system that emits waves and allows devices to be charged over distances as much as one foot away.
Currently, Pi chargers are being sold as a standalone product but integration with products like Google Home or Amazon Echo is something that the company is looking forward to.
While the price for the Pi charger is yet to be confirmed, it will most likely go on sale below $200. The company is also offering $50 discount to the first 314 people to pre-order the device on their website.
