What do you expect from,
1. The founder of a wireless power company,
2. Numerous poorly-constructed straw men, appeals to authority, and other dubious arguments, and
3. An e-mag that desperately wants more copy to sell ads on top of?

Got to love his arithmetic and logic.

Charging one phone from a wall wart is 14%,if you use it to charge two phones it halves to 7%.

So charging 1000 phones from one wall wart obviously you would be into negative efficiency, is that an over unity machine, I had better email him, he is sure to know.

"It will bounce off walls, floors, and ceilings to reach the transmitter."

Has he heard about absorption and attenuation of the waves?
What about multipath reception, which could result in signal cancellation?

I really love that he says straight to the reader that 12 is more than double than 10 and that 12 parts of 22 is 14%.

And someone like this calls himself a CTO...

Also the technology is ready for primetime according to the company of the author since 2013 and can be licensed but no one did it: http://www.ossia.com/cota/

No. 2 O RLY?

There is only one solution...SAFE YOU SAY?! Well that means I can totally strap some magnetrons to the author's face and it will be totally fine right? And if for some odd reason their face burns off Indiana Jones style, well they can't complain becuase they said it was ok. >:D

These people are either lame con artists that can't think of an original scam and instead tout the same old garbage we've already heard, or they're some more serious idiots. Some really dark part of me kind of hopes they actually do try high power wireless stuff and get a Darwin award.
