That’s Intel’s idea for inductive charging, which it’s showing off at Computex. The setup would stick a charging attachment to your phone — though eventually it would probably be built in — just like inductive charging now, but instead of a dedicated charging pad, you’d just slide your phone up next to your laptop. Once you do, there’s a notification noise and a popup indication telling you that power’s routing from the laptop to your phone.
Inductive charging is one of those hyper-cool future-tech ideas that isn’t exactly practical in the real world just yet, so here’s hoping Intel can make this a reality. [Verge]
