RCA AirPower Charges Batteries From WiFi Signals

As cool as gadgets get, they all eventually need to have their batteries charged. RCA Airpower solves this problem by constantly charging your devices (via WiFi). Heres how they do it:
...the company has found a way to suck in and regurgitate the 2.4GHz WiFi signal, and convert it to an energy source. From there, and while it’s stuck inside the AirPower charger, it can charge the battery of any device that you can plug in with a USB cable. After about 6-8 hours of constant WiFi signal barrage, the AirPower charger will be able to charge your drained battery in about as much time as it takes for you to charge it in an AC wall outlet.
Pretty nifty idea.... I wonder in the future if this idea could be implemented in other household devices to where extension cords and outlets would be a thing of the past. hmmmmmm.....
