Xiaomi introduced a wireless charging system that works meters away

Wireless charging systems have gradually become more important in the design of certain devices, especially for mobile devices. Today a new technology was introduced for this charging system, which comes from Xiaomi.

This is Mi Air Charge, a remote charging system with the ability to power multiple devices with 5W at the same time, but without the need to establish direct contact, as this technology could operate "several meters away" and not be limited by the presence of obstacles in its direct spectrum.

Xiaomi's wireless charging technology was presented today through a concept-level release, without currently announcing concrete implementations or very detailed technical specifications.

Xiaomi's commitment to a fully wireless ecosystem

Clearly, Xiaomi's proposal is far from what has been known to date by its direct competitors. Unlike the standard charging stations we know today, Xiaomi's charging totem has five antennas that can accurately detect the location of the smartphone, despite obstacles that may be in between. This is complemented by the presence of 144 antennas responsible for transmitting the load by millimeter waves directly to the phone, using a technique called beamforming.

Currently, the remote charging technology developed by Xiaomi is capable of remotely charging several or a single device within a radius of several meters, not precisely specified.

The presentation is purely conceptual. A couple of graphics of the load station prototype are presented, but there is no talk of supported devices, release date or less, prices. What is known for sure, because Xiaomi has confirmed it in front of the press, is that this technology will not see commercially light during this year.

The project presented by Chinese technology is really ambitious. Although the example is presented oriented to mobiles, this charging technology developed by Xiaomi will also be able to work later with smartwatches, bracelets, and other portable devices.

According to the company's projections, in the future our living room devices, such as speakers, desk lamps, and other products that can be categorized as smart, will have as the axis of their operation a wireless charging system, completely dispensing with the use of cables.

The premise is no longer just that shortly our homes could become smart completely. Thanks to advances of this type, it is now to be expected that the smart devices that predominate in these spaces will also offer wireless solutions.

At first, the approach is interesting. When it comes to learning more finished details, once it is openly launched to the market, this proposal can be evaluated with greater ownership and to establish parallels with the technologies already known and present in the environment.
