uBeam - Wireless Charging Defined
It's not in full production, but they are available for purchase. This is just the beginning!
Just think what they could accomplish in another 5-10 years. They could be putting these things on cell phone towers and we'd never have to worry about being limited by a cord!

This (as a way to cut the cord) ranks right up there with perpetual energy devices.
There are finite limitations on transmission wirelessly, and in will not in any foreseeable future be beamed from towers to your device, or from your house to your car even.

Also if you look at the history of wireless power, you see people getting cm's for high power device and feet for lower power devices.
Long story short, don't become an investor if the opportunity presents itself.
You could relate this to Android's story. Apple introduced the first iPhone in 2007, giving the world a push toward smart phone technology. Google's first android phone was available November 2008. Granted Apple's iOS has more users as of now, I believe Google will take the lead by 2015. Just look at how far it's come since it's first release.
