Startup to demo ultrasonic wireless power system
Troubled wireless power startup uBeam is to show its ultrasonic power transfer system at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas from January 8th.

The technology demonstration will show uBeam's contact-free power-at-a-distance ultrasonic wireless power system. This transfers power via ultrasonic sound rather than electromagnetic fields. The company is aiming the technology at  consumer products, such as portable electronics and smart home devices, as well as industrial IoT sensors and asset trackers.

Founder and chief executive Meredith Perry had to step down in September having raised $40m for the technology with over 100 filed patents after doubts about how effective the technology can be. A replacement has still to be appointed.
