Engineers create wireless chargers that can easily be cut down – ScienceDaily


Tokyo University has developed a new system for electronic devices to charge smartphones and smartphones wirelessly. The method includes a cuttable, flexible power sheet that holds the device wirelessly and can be placed or cut with scissors to fit the surfaces and objects of different shapes.

"I really want to live in a wireless world," says Rao Takahah, Master of Information Science and Technology School. "Imagine homes and offices without tangled cables and think how useful it can be for developing areas such as robots."

Takahashi is a graduate student whose previous study of robots inspired him to pioneer ways such as robots and smartphones simply and easily. This road led to the creation of the first non-stop wireless power transmission line. This might seem strange to invent something so that it can be reduced to pieces, but the idea of ​​the user can reshape the sheet to fit any surface on which they want to charge the devices.

"You can do more than just cut this sheet into fun or interesting forms," ​​continues Takahashi. "The sheet is thin and flexible, so you can adjust the surfaces around like bags and clothes, our idea everyone can change the different surfaces of wireless charging places."

The clever design that allows the novel's properties is what separates this idea from existing nonstandard power chargers. Both systems use cadastral lines of the charger to trigger the current collisions of the device. But the cuttable sheet is not only thin but has a wide usable charging area thanks to the way the coils are designed. These lines are also wired, which is enough if the sheet will be shortened because they can charge the device.

"Currently 400 millimeters (15.75-inches) square sheet provides 2 to 5 watts for smartphones, but I think it could be up to ten watts or just enough for a small computer," adds Tacaca. "In a few years I love this sheet that looks like furniture, toys, bags and clothes, I hope the technology is more invisible."
