Say Goodbye to Wires in 2016…Hopefully


Intel is introducing their next wave of technology at the Taiwan Computex show. They are showing off  “Skylark”, codename for Intel’s solution to messy wires. Skylark will use the magnetic resonance charging standard to wireless power multiple devices at once. Chances are that we wouldn’t be seeing any “Skylark” enabled devices until late 2015 or 2016, but its still good to see progress.

There is currently a battle between the WPC (Qi) and PMA (Skylark). They are battling it out to see who will be the standard for wireless charging.  There has been a lot of progress in both standards, and they both seem to have some solid backers. Only time will tell which standard becomes widely adopted. I am just glad there is a solution to my rat nests in the near future. Here is a link to the full article at CNN.
