To think about something that has previously been impossible -- real wireless power -- is a difficult thing for many people. Especially for engineers, inventors, and thought-leaders who have been frustrated by the wireless energy options, and limitations, they have seen to date.

To help you understand what is truly possible, and in fact, what is already being demonstrated by Ossia as possible today, we’ve broken down the story of wireless power into five sections:

Why Cota™ Wireless Power is Inherently Safe

Posted by Hatem Zeine on Apr 26, 2017 4:02:31 PM

People have been trying to make wireless power delivery systems for over a hundred years. The failures have been so persistent and complete, that the RF engineering discipline has all but labeled it “impossible”. “The inverse square law will kill the signal and thus the range” is usually the retort to any claims of wireless power. Beamforming, resonance and coupling have been laid to rest as viable wireless power contenders. RF engineering was lost for answers on this topic.

Here’s How To Get Wireless Power Technology Into Your Product

Posted by Hatem Zeine on Mar 28, 2017 8:00:00 AM

It’s hard to imagine, but a little over a century ago, electrical devices had to be handwired to the power source. Forget about the inconvenience factor—it was plain dangerous! If a short circuit occurred, or the wires were exposed to the elements, it posed major risks to anyone standing nearby. This is why, when Harvey Hubbell II patented the U.S. electrical plug in 1904, it just made sense for electrical manufacturers and designers to comply with the new system.

The Magic Behind Cota™ Wireless Power

Posted by Hatem Zeine on Mar 9, 2017 8:00:00 AM

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. Clark

16 years ago, while experimenting with means of sending signals between two points, I made a discovery.  Instead of thinking of the transmitter and receiver as a single function devices (senders send and receivers receive), having both sides capable of sending and receiving created far more functionality: practical wireless power. We call the technology based on this discovery “Cota”.
