Xiaomi air charger technology

How excited can somebody reasonably get when discussing wireless charging? The answer has probably eluded experts since the days of Nikola Tesla (mainly because wireless charging didn't exist until very recently), but we have a hunch we're about to find out.

You see, Xiaomi has just unveiled a brand new slice of charging tech that feels legitimately sci-fi, and might actually revolutionise how we refuel our gadgets.

It's called Mi Air Charge technology, and it's about to blow your puny mind.

Okay, so we might've been a tad overzealous, but we're pretty damn excited about what Xiaomi had cooked up.

Unlike traditional wireless charging tech, which generally requires users to place their gadgets on a charging stand or pad, Mi Air Charge is truly wireless. It utilises a remote 'charging pile' that can detect the location of your smartphone and beam energy over to it through thin air.

According to Xiaomi's best and brightest, the charging pile has "five phase interference antennas built in, which can accurately detect the location of a smartphone. A phase control array, composed of 144 antennas, transmits millimetre-wide waves directly to the phone through beamforming."

There's a lot of jargon, but essentially it'll charge compatible devices as long as they're within a radius of a few metres. No cables, no pads, just automatic wireless charging taking care of itself.
