Ossia Intros the Cota Wireless Remote Power System

With all the wireless solutions available to consumers, there is still one function that has us tethered to a wire: the charger. Wireless charging solutions are available, but what is currently on the market has to be used on top of the charging device, which only provides a detached charging system and is not wireless in the way we have come to define the word.

The Cota wireless remote power system from Ossia is revolutionizing this technology by delivering targeted energy to multiple devices within a 30-foot radius automatically, providing a truly wireless solution. This means you can charge your device without having to place it on a charging platform.

This power distribution system is able to cover an average two-story home and charge a wide range of devices in addition to smartphones, including batteries, remote controls, cameras, video game controllers, flashlights, smoke detectors, Bluetooth devices, and more.

Without using inductive coils, ultrasonic waves, magnetic resonance, charge pads or mats, the patented smart antenna technology transfers power using phased arrays. Consisting of a charger and receiver, the system is able to locate receivers built into devices by sending an omnidirectional signal at a rate of 100 times per second, thereby covering all the devices within range. If it finds an obstruction between the receiver and transmitter it discovers another route to the charger through an open path avoiding anything that absorbs energy such as a person, pets or even plants.

"We have been developing the Cota technology in stealth for the last six years. By revealing for the very first time real wireless power that is remote, efficient and safe, Ossia expects to change everything you think you know about wireless power. Cota will unleash the imagination of product designers and entrepreneurs globally to innovate and create new products that only exist in a completely wireless state – one that is always on and always ready," said CEO and creator physicist Hatem Zeine.

Zeine is confident this technology will be used to introduce a new level of convenience and efficiency to virtually every device used by consumers, businesses, and industries. He expects Cota to be available in 2015.
