GuRu produces miniature modules that allow the transfer of power to be done at a long distance thus revolutionizing the consumer experience. With today’s press release, the two firms say that “Motorola and GuRu, will work together to match Motorola’s rigorous requirements of quality, power efficiency and safety.” Florian Bohn, CEO and co-founder of GuRu, said, “Innovation has always been part of Motorola’s DNA. The company has long enriched our lives with its ecosystem of smart devices and solutions. We are excited to join forces with an industry leader whose goal is to improve the consumer experience. Together, we will introduce true mobility for portable smart devices and IoT sensors.”
On its web site, GuRu explains that its system uses radio waves to send power to devices. “Our zero contact energy system powers devices in homes and workspaces. Beams of radio waves carry energy through the air, from generator—to device.”
The company further states that “These beams intelligently find, and power devices. Devices placed anywhere in a room with a nearby generator automatically receive power.” Sounds like something that smartphone users are surely looking forward to using in the future.
