CES 2012 coverage: Wireless power, one year and 75 new Qi complaint products later
It is hard to believe a year ago (time flies), we announced our first Qi-compliant wireless power development kit. With the release, we were asked a number of questions about expected adoption rate, markets pursuing the technology, and the value of the standard.
I felt revisiting these questions a year later is a good way to acknowledge the anniversary of the release; and no better way to revisit, but to highlight the technology at this year’s show.
At CES 2012, there are 75 new Qi-enabled products being demonstrated. The demos include smartphones, tablets, automotive consoles, furniture, gaming controllers, first-responder equipment, mobile routers, and more. The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) is hosting a meeting room in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (#25950) where these and other demos can be viewed.
In addition, you can visit us to view our comprehensive demos in Meeting Room # N226. We are on the second floor of the North Hall looking over the entrance to the Central Hall.
