Here is a neat young lady who belongs only in the Gulch:

Meredith Perry was an astrobiology major in college and did space research for NASA, but at the tender age of 25 years she has taken on the remarkable task of challenging the entire electrical delivery system framework with her very new and innovative company called, uBeam. And, she’s hiring. Her goal is epic and she is just two years away from making it happen. As of this writing she is poised to partner with a tech company with deep pockets like Apple or Google to remove power cords from all appliances starting with mobile devices. Here is the way she describes her company to potential applicants.

    I hope it's true, but I'm very skeptical.

    She talks like this problem came to her while using mobile device. People have been working on this problem for a long time. To continue her wifi analogy, in wi-fi one millionth of the transmit power reaches the receiver antenna. If the same path loss applies power transmitted ultrasonically, it would take the power used by an entire city block to charge one mobile device.
