Wireless charging MotherBox works at distance of up to half a meter

Recently, researchers at Disney Research demonstrated the technology of wireless energy transmission, which allows you to simultaneously charge all the equipment in the room and does not restrict user movement, in contrast to conventional wireless chargers for smartphones. While this is only a prototype, and what is available today? Yank Technologies, the company has launched on Indiegogo a draft charging MotherBox, which is a mix of existing solutions and future technologies.

Recently, researchers at Disney Research demonstrated the technology of wireless energy transmission, which allows you to simultaneously charge all the equipment in the room and does not restrict user movement, in contrast to conventional wireless chargers for smartphones. While this is only a prototype, and what is available today? Yank Technologies, the company has launched on Indiegogo a draft charging MotherBox, which is a mix of existing solutions and future technologies.

How it works


Portable version you can take with you on the road

MotherBox uses the principle of magnetic resonance and has three circuits. They are located in three different planes and allow you to transfer power over a distance of about 50 cm, but at the border of the range it will be only 2 watts (comparable to connecting to a USB 2.0 port, and it is very slow). Closer to the source the higher power of 8 W at a distance of 25 cm, and 10 watts, if your smartphone is not on 13 cm from the charge. By itself, the smartphone does not begin to restore the charge on the housing to fix the receiver in the form of a thin plate that connects to the Lightning port, microUSB or USB Type-C can be hidden under the case, but at the same time to charge the iPhone 7 and listen to music on wired headphones again will not work.


The closer the smartphone, the faster charging

MotherBox Mini is a completely wireless version with battery on the 7000 mAh. Its maximum power is 5 W, and decreases to 2 watts at a distance greater than 13 cm, but the portable version can simply be put next with a smartphone. Both models have the form of a truncated icosahedron, and therefore a bit like a soccer ball.

MotherBox supports simultaneous charging 3-4 devices, and the Mini version — no more than two. Configure the gadget in the company app for Android or iOS. And Yes, news is incompatible with the inductive charging standard Qi.

The issue price

MotherBox can be booked for $79, a portable model with a rechargeable battery will cost $89 and each additional receiver costs $12. If all goes to plan, deliveries will begin in September. The guys already have working prototypes, but it does not guarantee that the development will be completed in time. In any case, the campaign has already collected several times more than the required $50 000 (this feature of the project is crossed in the first 5 days, and collection will continue for another three weeks).
