Ossia's Cota system delivering long-range charging through walls, doors

Redmond, Wash.-based Ossia has been demonstrating for investors the latest generation of its Cota wireless charging technology, which can charge a mobile device from up to 40 feet away without requiring direct line of sight. The technology can even penetrate through surfaces such as walls and closed doors to power a device, according to TechCrunch. Ultimately, the technology might be used to power all of the devices in a home or small office. Ossia intends to roll out a prototype of the updated technology later this year and is already working to license the technology to consumer electronics makers for inclusion in receivers that will be embedded in new products.
