Energous Corporation Demonstrates Wire-free Charging during CES In a Future Home Environment
LAS VEGAS (January 5th, 2015) - Energous Corporation ("Energous" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: WATT), the developer of WattUp™, a disruptive wire-free charging technology for electronic devices that provides power at a distance with complete mobility under full software control, is hosting invite-only, wireless charging demonstrations during 2015 International CES. The Company’s revolutionary, patent-and trademark-pending WattUp solution will be presented in two representations of future home environments at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Registered guests will experience unleashed wire-free charging in the two story apartment suites and see a demonstration of various electronic devices employing the WattUp technology, which has been integrated seamlessly into a common residential setting, providing the ability to charge a multitude of devices free of any wired connection or charging pad.
WattUp delivers intelligent, scalable power via the same radio bands as a Wi-Fi router. It differs from current wireless charging systems in that it delivers meaningful, usable power at a distance, allowing users to roam freely while charging. The technology has also been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home, Portable Power and Embedded Technologies categories.
"As a leading company in the development of true wire-free, uncoupled power with complete mobility, Energous is proud to be demonstrating our technology in model homes of the future. This event at CES 2015 marks a significant achievement for Energous and the industry in showing how wire-free charging can be deployed in everyday living environments.” said Stephen R. Rizzone, CEO of Energous Corporation. “We believe we are the only CES exhibitor to be demonstrating true wire-free charging technology that lets users roam while their devices charge.”
