Invention of a Canadian student could increase battery life of mobile devices
While the features of smartphones like the Iphone or Blackberry are continuously upgraded, it seems like the development of the power supply for such devices stagnates. But the invention of a Canadian student could put things right.
Atif Shamim, an engineering student of the Canadian Carleton University, did what huge development departments of major companies failed to do. He identified the circuits that connect the electrical components and the antenna as power consumers. If those are replaced by a wireless connection, battery life of mobile devices can be increased up to twelve times of the original duration. Shamim already created a working prototype, which compared to common wired transmitting modules also has a more simple design and thus would be cheaper in production.
Now one only can hope that many companies license Shamim's development for their future products.
