Interesting option, but you could just plug it in at home to recharge. Image

yeah, but... for longer trips, charges as you travel and overcomes that issue where people reject EV's because of their lack of distance/have to wait for recharge issues (even though it's been said 95% of trips are less than 40-50 KM's).

I'm astounded that they can get enough power to light an LED with hundreds of millimetres of "air gap".

Haven't they decided that inductive charging of mobile phones is just impractical? Now EVs? I'm skeptical.

Well it mentions it's in areas where the cars are slow or stopped, so maybe you have a thing on the bottom of the car that drops down, so the airgap is small? Who knows...

Only being a pretend engineer, is the absolute airgap the issue, or is the relative size of the airgap to the size of the things it is between. e.g. is a 1mm airgap between 100mmx100mm things the same %loss as a 1cm airgap between 100cmx100cm things?
