In an answer posted in March by Donald Howard in your site regarding feasible alternatives to transporting energy he mentions that energy transmission through waves in the atmosphere is not an option because of the necessary voltages and big distances. I am wondering if with small distances (like those found in a room between my Wi-Fi enabled PC and the Wi-Fi transmitter (antenna) this transmitter would be able to transmit energy to my PC through the same method they transmit bits. What are the parameters that I have to take into account so this situation can take place (e.g. min volts, min watts, min distance, etc)
Re: Can you ¨harvest¨energy emitted by Wi-Fi antennas?
