  • Motorola and GuRu wireless, a company working on over-the-air charging solutions for smart devices, announced a partnership in a press release on Wednesday, May 12.
  • The U.S.-based firm developed a system that charges devices over-the-air — meaning wirelessly without the need to place the device on a charging pad — using millimeter-wave (mmWave) integrated circuits.
  • Several companies, such as Ossia and Wi-Charge, have developed their own over-the-air charging solutions in a bid to get rid of the need for electronic charging cables — one of the main culprits when it comes to e-waste.
