Power Lasers

Ericsson and PowerLight Technologies have developed a method to send power wirelessly to 5G base stations using lasers. The power lasers can send 480 watts over 300 metres and are expecting to upscale to 1,000 watts over 1km.

Flying Microchip

Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a flying microchip sensor device. The microfliers are modelled on how maple trees spread their seed and fly in a slow stable rotation when moving through the air. The tiny devices include sensors, a power source, data storage and antennae for wireless communication. The goal is to be able to use the microfliers to sense the environment for contamination monitoring, population surveillance, or disease tracking.
