Residence without sockets

We draw a sub-station that distributes electric power to appliances without wires

Remote electrical energy transmission eliminates cable clutter and the need for multiple splitters and extenders. Outlets gave way to sub-stations attached to the every room ceiling which power appliances remotely. Among other advantages, this solution has made the home a safer place, especially for children.

Devin McLaughlin Finally! No I don't have to worry about charging my phone! 06 Feb 2019
Adan V I do not believe we will get rid off the outlets completely. 1. Not all devices will be up to date on new technology. Look at it this way, we are in 2017 and still using devices (washing machine, tvs, cooking devices) that need a direct power source as they did 40 years ago. 2. Not everyone would be able to afford such a lavish technology. 3. I do agree on a different type of power supply but not completely wireless. 06 Feb 2019
James Revelator I agree w Adan V on 1st . Not to mention, that that technology dates almost 100 years ago. Tesla could distribute large amounts of energy across large distances with minimal lose in electricity but there is no money in that. This prediction is largely based on assumption that billionaires agree on losing money because wireless transportation of energy, even on short distances, opens Teslas Pandora box: all energy can be wirelesses sent from across the globe which means energy is very, very cheep. we pay it this much only because transportation is inefficient. 06 Feb 2019
James Royle This is a precursor to field technology which could ultimately be one of the great innovations of the future leading up to the creation of 'utility fog' which could use force fields and nanotechnology to manipulate one's environment at will. In meantime expect it to create a power hub for all technology, including cybernetics, within a certain location. 06 Feb 2019
