JERICHO, N.Y. — Kube Systems has unveiled its first magnetic resonance-based application at the Consumer Technology Association’s CES 2016 show. Designed in cooperation with Intel, a prototype of the KS Magnetic Resonance Charging Solution is now on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the AirFuel Alliance Booth SL-4.
Kube Systems has been developing wireless charging solutions for Marriott International Inc. hotels for several years. As global charging standards change, the company is committed to developing solutions that are both future-proof and investment-proof. “Magnetic-resonance technology is the future of wireless charging,” says Dave Weinstein, VP of Kube Systems. “Unlike magnetic induction technology, whereby a user’s phone needs to be placed very accurately on the target zone, magnetic resonance charging offers more freedom of placement of the mobile device on the charging pad. This convenience is ideal for hotel guests travelling with multiple devices.”
Available in five finishes, the KS Magnetic Resonance Charger can be laid flat or angled to provide better visibility while the mobile device is in use. When properly paired, the outer rim of the charging pad illuminates. The prototype at CES 2016 is designed to charge smartphones only, however, a commercial version may simultaneously charge multiple phones and a wider array of devices such as tablets.
