Wi-tricity, or wireless electricity is a technology I first heard about in the timeline, and have been keenly interested in since. It's magnetic coupling of a coil in your appliances to a field produced in your walls, with the power drawn from the grid. Essentially, it removes the need for power cords and could allow you to charge your devices upon entering your house, charging your car as soon as you drive it into your garage, or allow you to forget about power points and being able to move larger appliances where you want them, rather than where you are able to have them based on power restrictions.
Moving your TV anywhere thanks to an absence of electric cords, charging your car without having to remember to plug it in, charging your phone while it's in your pocket and having your tablet PC charged without taking it out of your bag. That's the home of the future.
