Wireless Electricity.

Wireless power transfer over two-meter distance, from the coil on the left to the coil on the right, where it powers a 60W light bulb.

A team of scientists from MIT demonstrated a way to send electricity through the air, without wires:

Realizing their recent theoretical prediction, they were able to light a 60W light bulb from a power source seven feet (more than two meters) away; there was no physical connection between the source and the appliance. The MIT team refers to its concept as "WiTricity" (as in wireless electricity).

Wonder what the side effects are, standing between the coils like that.
Maybe none of them wanted to have kids, anyway.

If the MIT kiddies didn't know about or didn't credit Tesla then they need to recieve the WORST GRADE IMMAGINABLE: AN A--
