Sucking blood from your laptop. Intel shows a wireless charging solution with the laptop in the center.

Wireless charging for mobiles? Soon. Very soon.

As some point out, the use case isn't amazing and it isn't new. Wireless electricity doesn't mean mobile electricity, at least not yet. But here we have one small added convenience. One less cable to carry.

I believe that 2013 will be the year wireless charging becomes a rather standard feature in devices.

Power efficiency is a concern though, as it takes power to transmit power with such solutions. So cutting that last cord has its costs.
