Wireless Electricity on Asgardia? ¶
Nikoa Tesla was famous for his innovations in the realm of science and specifically electricity. It is well known that he had a very plausible idea to create a world - wide network for the transmission of energy and data. In today's world, such systems exist, however limiting. Some countries utilize AC while others use DC. Electricity is, with few exceptions, wired. Would it not be prudent to develop and one day implement the wireless transmission of electricity to our mobile devices (phones, tablets, and laptops) so that the generation of off-world habitants can never have to worry about finding their charging cable? Some mobile phones today are already utilizing conductive charging but this works on a very localized range. Would we be able to develop a way to harness wireless energy for our devices and never have to worry about a low battery again?
I am not an engineer but a dreamer. I think this post might also belong on the Engineering forum but I thought that our technology experts might want to weigh in also.
I have a fun vision for Asgardia, where we all use a lightweight tablet like device to interact digitally with our country. We can browse the networks, communicate, teach, learn and even pay for a meal all with this device. I am working on some conceptual sketches for such a device, but would love to hear you all weigh in on the idea of transmitting energy wirelessly throughout our space stations and moon bases. I assume that Solar energy will become a standard energy source as it is already being used on ISS and other space vehicles and would be a natural choice for our stations as well. It is near-free to use and we don't have to worry about the sun going dark for a VERY long time.
