A Pasadena-based company has released a developer kit allowing innovators to experiment with their new technology, capable of sending electricity through the air, wirelessly, the company announced Tuesday.
GuRu Wireless, founded by a team of Caltech engineers and scientists, has been working on “millimeter-wave wireless power solutions,” which allow power to be transmitted directly through the air at distances of three feet or more, the company said in a written statement. The system works through proprietary 24GHz “RFlensing” technology and can be applied to a multitude of devices.
“At 24GHz, the solution leapfrogs others to enable significantly higher power over a longer distance, while reducing overall system size and cost,” according to the statement.
The development has already garnered excitement, GuRu Wireless CEO Florian Bohn said. And now, the company is providing a kit to allow other technology developers to find innovative uses for the new technology.
“GuRu received incredible feedback on prototypes unveiled earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show and is now excited to empower partners and OEMs for innovating products for staying powered and connected in meaningful ways,” he said. “Via our latest evaluation kit, partners can assess potential use case scenarios and implement wireless power for desired applications.”
Developers can incorporate GuRu’s system into their own inventions, allowing for increased power transfer speed, efficiency and distance, while also allowing devices to be smaller and lower cost, the company said.
