We're gonna get Tesla power!

This article was so cool I had to point it out:

US researchers have outlined a relatively simple system that could deliver power to devices such as laptop computers or MP3 players without wires.
...
The team from MIT is not the first group to suggest wire-less energy transfer.
Nineteenth-century physicist and engineer Nikola Tesla experimented with long-range wire-less energy transfer, but his most ambitious attempt - the 29m high aerial known as Wardenclyffe Tower, in New York - failed when he ran out of money.

It's not for broadcasting power around the world -- it's for charging up devices and, potentially, nanotech. Which is logical but ironic: on the macro scale wires are cheap, but on the micro scale they are bulky and expensive!
