Charging a mobile phone while in a handbag on an enabled surface and being able to power devices through metal surfaces are just two of the advances in wireless power that Fulton Innovation will be showcasing at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
Fulton Innovation, creators of eCoupled intelligent wireless power, will for the first time in Europe demonstrate the ability to power devices through metal surfaces, at the GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 event in Barcelona this week.
During the past year, Fulton has advanced a range of wireless power technology capabilities, which will be unveiled to European audiences at MWC. It will be displaying its technology at the Wireless Power Consortium booth in Hall 1.
Fulton Innovation will be demonstrating wireless power capabilities that can power electronics through various surfaces. It will also show advances in spatial freedom that allow a mobile phone to be charged on an enabled surface while inside a handbag, without the need for wires. Other demonstrations will include several Qi-certified mobile phones that are available in various world markets from several manufacturers ‚ HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Panasonic, and more.
Wireless power technology has advanced beyond simply charging a mobile phone or other devices. Fulton has developed an advance power solution that can be easily and cost-effectively integrated onto any surface, including packaging and publications. At Mobile World Congress, Fulton will display a recent issue of popular entertainment magazine, Entertainment Weekly, that will light up on the shelf through the use of wirelessly powered printed electronics. This new use of wireless power technology will provide publishers and advertisers with a new means of attracting readers’ attention and increasing sales.
“We are happy to be back in Barcelona to showcase some of our latest innovations in wireless power technology,”” said Dave Baarman, Director of Advanced Technologies for Fulton Innovation. “”The work we are collaborating on with our partners is making it possible to advance the capabilities of wireless power technology and expand its availability to everyday consumers and the mobile industry. We look forward to sharing our work with Mobile World Congress attendees.””
Fulton Innovation will also be demonstrating technology at the Pepcom MobileFocus Global media event at the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I in Barcelonatonight.
