In other words, this enables multiple devices to be charged wirelessly similar to how we get internet access through Wi-Fi.

"This new innovative method will make it possible for electrical power to become as ubiquitous as WiFi. This in turn could enable new applications for robots and other small mobile devices by eliminating the need to replace batteries and wires for charging," said Alanson Sample, associate lab director & principal research scientist at Disney Research.

Bose Suspension

By using powerful electromagnetic struts, the Bose car suspension system could instantly extend or retract any one wheel, with all four corners working in concert to keep the vehicle's body level. The system was installed on a Lexus LS400 outside its headquarters in Framingham, Massachusetts, and a driver sped the car over several obstacles while the body remained completely level. Where can you find this technology today? Unfortunately, only in big-rig truck seats, where the Bose Ride mounting system actively nulls shock and vibration before it hits the driver.

Dot Braille Smartwatch


Introducing DOT, the world's first braille smartwatch, and it's not just a concept. Rather than a conventional display, this one uses raised bumps to show braille text. More specifically, the face is comprised of four cells with six balls each, and the biggest challenge for the company was figuring out how to keep the exposed pieces protected while in use. "The reality is that inclusive information access is limited by cost barriers and lack of innovations. While many products are designed exclusively for the majority, our visually impaired communities can't benefit from much of its advances," said founder and CEO Eric Kim. Available at select retailers in London, priced at $320 beginning next month. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny work pictures gallery.
