Charge During Drive
If nothing else, we Americans are creatures of comfort. Notice that I didn't say creatures of habit, but that is true also. Yes, we do enjoy our comfort. So when I saw this example of the ultimate "creature comfort" in the realm of battery-driven driving, I just had to share it.
Batteries are today's "Achilles Heel" in our drive for electric mobility, but there's an exciting technology that could negate the need for a super-battery that will supposedly solve our energy storage problems: Inductive Power Transfer, or IPT.
IPT is in effect, wireless power transfer, using wireless magnetic energy.
Educators, think of the varied science and technology curriculum opportunities while you enjoy the video!
