New Charger Harvests Energy from Wi-Fi Signals
I'm sure there are plenty of pros and cons, but...
Will it fry your brain
No thanks. This sounds like a terrible idea.
but if they make wi-fi hotspots more efficient... / billing?

So if there's all this excess energy in the air, should it simply be curtailed, or harnessed? If it's harnessed for wireless battery charging, the next logical question is who pays? Do we need a billing standard? Could you choose to charge your phone just by sitting in a Starbucks, and have the electricity cost billed to your Starbucks card? (Or AT&T bill?)
Gosh, this sounds like such cool Star...
So it won't power laptops? and...
Will it slow down the network?
If so wouldn't/shouldn't that require a wap/wep key?
