New metamaterials technology offers a cable-free lifestyle

Dr Chris Stevens and his research team from Oxford’s Department of Engineering Science have developed a new technology that allows devices such as mobile phones and cameras to both charge and transmit data without cables. Current applications target smaller, low power devices. However, employed on a larger scale, this technology might eliminate the need for power and data cables altogether. Isis Innovation Ltd, the University of Oxford’s research commercialisation company, is working with Dr Chris Stevens to bring the technology to market.
