Power AND Data Transfer Using Inductive Coupling aka Wireless Power? Answered
I'm sure that many people are familiar with Wireless Power.
Especially with ALL the new products out in stores that power your iPod and Cell Phones without wires! Through the air, these products raise your dead battery from the grave, and return them to full power through the air!
Obviously this is an amazing feat of physics. My instructable on Wireless Power has gotten a lot of people exited about the "no-wires" future that we can enjoy. I've been working on this project for a long time, and I feel that inductive coupling has so much more potential.
One day I thought of the possibilities. I though wouldn't it be awesome if I could sync my iPod wirelessly while charging it wirelessly.
Here's my question: Transferring data using inductive coupling? Good idea?
My goal is to make an instructable on data transfer with inductive coupling. I'm looking for motivation, so if you're interested in this please post a comment. I think it would be awesome if Powermat, or some other company would make data transfer possible.
So, wire free data transfer w/ inductive coupling, good idea? THANKS
