Innovation Log: Power Beaming Technology

It is nice to see challenge winners turning into product builders. It is nicer to see innovations that push the limits of what we can do. A news story about LaserMotive:

It’s the first commercial product to be offered for sale by LaserMotive, which was founded in 2007 by a group of physicists and engineers, winning the NASA Centennial Challenges Power Beaming Challenge in 2009. LaserMotive has received NASA contracts and partnered with companies including Lockheed Martin in the process of developing and testing its power-beaming technology.

I have a couple of students working on some cool power beaming technology as well. But that is low power and is on a very small budget. Right now it is very experimental. Once we have a small demonstrable prototype, will write more about it.
