PowerShake: Power Transfer Interactions for Mobile Devices The
Tyranny of the Everyday in Mobile Video Messaging
Running out of smartphone battery could be a thing of the past, thanks to power sharing between devices.
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.
