Het is een uitdagende gedachte. Heeft wat weg van James Bond films, denk eens even aan een power beam gericht op de aarde, waar wordt die ontvangen, wat gebeurt er bij een shift van de richting etc.

 

Wellicht is er een wetenschapper die hier meer over kan vertellen??

Een quote uit een artikel van thefeature.com December 2001:

 

Wireless 1901: Tesla's World System

 

Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla asked the same question just over a century ago. Tesla was among the most important inventors of the modern era, as he was responsible for the technologies undergirding many of our appliances and machines today:

 

AC power, vacuum tube amplifiers, radio (co-opted by Marconi, whose patent was later stripped by the US Supreme Court), X-Ray machines, and his "Tesla coils" made possible modern high voltage picture tubes (like computer monitors). In 1899, he began to use the planet Earth as a means of resonating and transmitting electricity. Firing continual pulses of electricity into the Earth, he found that the pulses combined, amplified, and created ever more powerful waves. This way he could provide a harmless charge, enough to power small devices nearby. That year Telsa successfully powered 200 lamps from a distance of 40 kilometers without wires.

 

In 1900, Tesla was excited to wirelessly transmit both power and data around the world in what he termed the "World System." At Wardenclyffe, in Long Island, New York, Tesla began developing his first wireless power transmission tower.

 

In his article "The Future of the Wireless Art," appearing in Wireless Telegraphy & Telephony in 1908, Tesla put it this way: after the Wardenclyffe plant is operational, "...it will be possible for a business man in New York to dictate instructions, and have them instantly appear in type at his office in London or elsewhere. He will be able to call up, from his desk, and talk to any telephone subscriber on the globe, without any change whatever in the existing equipment. An inexpensive instrument, not bigger than a watch, will enable its bearer to hear anywhere, on sea or land, music or song, the speech of a political leader, the address of an eminent man of science, or the sermon of an eloquent clergyman, delivered in some other place, however distant. In the same manner any picture, character, drawing, or print can be transferred from one to another place."

 

Early funding for the Wardenclyffe project came from New York financier J.P. Morgan, who believed he was funding a comparatively simple effort to develop a transoceanic radio. Costs for the project ran over. It became clear that there were cheaper ways to send this radio signal, and that Tesla had bigger plans for his tower.

 

Figuring that the free distribution of electricity would undercut his investments in power companies, Morgan withdrew his support for the project in 1904. Tesla was never able to fully develop the Wardenclyffe tower before his death in 1943.

 

If cutting wires represents some technology liberation, then we are not yet truly free. While we have worlds of information and communication at our disposal, we can never be more than two hours away from a power outlet.

 

As Tesla wrote nearly one hundred years ago, "More important than [the transmission of data], however, will be the transmission of power, without wires..." Tesla planned to show the pre-atomic, pre-computer world that "...the wireless art offers greater possibilities than any invention or discovery heretofore made, and if the conditions are favorable, we can expect with certitude that in the next few years wonders will be wrought by its application."

 

Perhaps some day, someone will figure out how to supercharge the world and we can experience true wireless.

 

Waarschijnlijk had ik het fout en bestaat draadloze energie nog niet? Of kan iemand anders mij hier meer over vertellen?

Voor zover ik het mij nog kan herrineren, heeft elke (radio/licht) golf een bepaalde energie. UV is ook 'wireless energy'.
