Microstory 987: Wireless Technology

This one is going to have to be short, because my dog hurt herself, and I spent a lot of time waiting for her at the animal hospital. I’m not entirely sure what I was thinking when I put this on my list. Wireless technology is great, of course, but is it worth an entire installment. Nah, not really. I will say that wireless tech came out several years ago, and it hasn’t gotten much better. I remember reading a few months ago about a wireless energy device that could reach up to one meter. That’s a significant improvement over the millimeters most wireless chargers use, but it’s still not good enough. In the future, I imagine a smoke-detector like instrument, attached to the ceiling of your home, that’s capable of powering all of your devices as long as you’re there. Maybe it only reaches that floor, and you have to buy more for larger houses, or maybe it’s like WiFi routers, which can cover an entire standard house. Some cities may even blanket the entire area with wireless power antennae, supporting the whole community all at once. Either way, we have to get rid of all these wires. It is the last thing tying us down. Thank you, and goodnight. I’m not even gonna edit this.
