We are pleased to announce The Economist has published an article on a paper by BIG researchers Paul Worgan, Jarrod Knibbe, Diego Martinez Plasencia and Mike Fraser.

The paper presents a power sharing concept called PowerShake. PowerShake enables users to share power across their multiple mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and smartwatches, using inductive power transfer. Today we are beginning to carry multiple mobile devices, though the energy is used at different rates across each of the devices, meaning one device could have near full battery and another almost no battery. PowerShake allows users to transfer energy, for example, from their tablet to their phone to support an important phone call. PowerShake also allows users to share or trade power with others, including friends, family and colleagues, on-the-go and all without charging cables.

Watch the PowerShake video for more information.
