Tokyo, Japan-Wireless charging. To some, it's a dream. To others, it's a reality. But no one would argue that it's as advanced as it should be. PowerMat has proven that with accessory cases and a plugged-in mat, one can "wirelessly" charge their cell phone. But it still requires physical contact, and the base station still has to be plugged into a wall. It's not hard to see the holes in the theory, and while it's a step in the right direction, this isn't the idea we had in mind when dreaming of wireless electricity a decade ago.
