Finally! Powermats have been released for sale. I've been waiting for these things for a while, and we've seen the concept in other designs before. They cost about $100 plus $40 for the receiver on each gadget. But forget about the cost for now, these things are really cool, and not just because people can be lazy and not plug a gadget in. I like them because it represents an improvement in energy transfer and technology.
Back to the cost. I'm not sure I'd buy one at that high of price to be honest. I'm more of a wait and see kind of guy. I'm pretty sure they'll come down in price once more companies start producing them, but who knows.
