uBeam has difficulty showing that its technology will work
Does it really work? That is the question that everyone wants to have the answer for.
uBeam is a start up created by Meredith Perry. It is considered as the most promising company in the Silicon Valley. 23 billion dollars have already been raised, investors include companies like Andreessen Horowitz, Founders Fund and individuals such as Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo.
But why does everybody talk about this company?
Meredith Perry claimed that she was working on a prototype that would enable people to use ultrasounds and transforms them into electricity for wireless charging. The devices could be charged meters away from the power source. Technically, it is really convenient and people seem ready to try it.
Unfortunately, the future of the company could be compromised because of the revelation by Paul Reynolds, a former engineer at uBeam who said that the product doesn’t work. For the moment, the energy transfer rates are not the ones which have been promised.
People seem more and more skeptical about the company and what is promised, there is no proof of the technology and the company didn’t comment on the accusations.
Does the company will be able to show its product soon? Are they just making a buzz to sell more products after? Time will tell… Stay tuned in the meantime.
Rumor: iPhone 7 should have wireless charging, after all!
A lot of people have expressed frustration in the fact that iPhones still do not have Qi Wireless Charging built-in. It is already possible to charge iPhones, iPods wirelessly with iQi Mobile and iQi PWRcase receivers, but it seems like Apple is gearing to integrate the technology directly into their handsets, as some other manufacturers already have.
In the last few months Apple hired at least 12 engineers specialized in wireless charging, and some came from… uBeam!
