SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— If the back of your computer looks like a bird’s nest you’ll be happy with Intel’s announcement this week. The chip maker is aiming to eliminate all those pesky PC cables by 2016.
They intend on doing this by literally eliminating all the cables, including the power cord, which blows me away. They will use magnetic resonance, a technology that can be used for charging where you might have a charger under a table and your computer on top can be charged through up to two-inches of wood. The system is also reported to be able to charge multiple devices at once.
We’ve already done this on some levels. At my house, my printer is connected through a wifi connection; we have Bluetooth keyboards and things like that. But to get the power cord replaced is pretty major.
