FCC approves 1st Power at Distance Wireless Charging

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Wednesday for the first time approved a device that can recharge electronics up to three feet away.

The Energous Corporation’s Watt Up device lets users charge their electronics, regardless of the manufacturer, without being connected to the charger through the use of radio frequencies.

According to the company, Watt Up underwent months of rigorous testing to make sure that it met consumer safety and regulatory requirements prior to the FCC's approval.

Bad idea!

So having a device that outputs strong radio waves inside you house is a good idea?

How do you know they are strong radio waves? And what makes you think that strong radio waves are dangerous?

This is a very BAD idea. Especially if you have young children. This RF exposure is bad for everybody, and would be way more than you get from a cellphone.
