There seem to be quite a bit of clever aussie blokes around. Maybe it's the habitat. Since they have the largest collection of venomous , stinging , biting animals in the world you need a bit more brains than average to survive there .... Not like in europe where the largest danger is being bitten by your floppy-eared fluffy-bunny ...

That reminds me of the time I avoided being bitten by a large collection of venomous, stinging and biting animals using my levitating light with wireless power transfer.

Floppy-eared fluffy bunnies have caused more economic & ecological distress in Australia than any other cause.

Back in the 1800s some idiot thought it would be nice to have cute little bunnies running around the bush to shoot at,or trap or something,so a few breeding pairs were released.
Well,rabbits do two things very well,breed,& eat,so soon there were millions of the little @#$%%^&*!!s munching their way across the landscape like a Biblical Plague.

Eventually,they were savagely reduced in number by the use of Myxomatosis,but what they had already destroyed never quite came back.
Some rabbits were immune  to the "Myxo",so they survived,& it all started again!

There are some new agents which are effective,but not quite as effective as Myxomatosis was.
Fluffy bunnies!---Hah!

what a waste. maybe due to people forgot another thing they are good at... being eaten.
if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

No,if everybody in Australia had rabbit for every meal,we still wouldn't have kept up with them!
Native & feral predators couldn't eat enough,either.
When it comes to survival,rabbits are winners all the way!

Doesn't any metal you wear on you get verry hot because of the eddy current?
Pulsing magnetic field generates alot of small shorts in a piece of metal and makes it hot.

Already did a post on this http://www.eevblog.com/forum/general-chat/levlight-magnetic-levitation-and-wireless-power-transfer-by-chris-rieger/
How does the guy manage to do the wireless power transfer, does he just shoot out electro magnetic waves and then has a transformer on the thing, or how? ???

It's just like and inductance charger
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inductive_charging

it is kinda like an transformer as you said. The core is air (bad) and in the ceiling there is one coil and in the lamp is the other one.
It's wireless but not efficient cuz of the air instead of iron.
