At the show, Tom’s Hardware met with the inventor of the technology, Hatam Zeine, to discuss when and where we might see the technology. Spoiler: It’ll probably be in business before you get your own.

Zeine describes a Double A device that can change batteries and use the company’s wireless power, for example in smoke detectors and remote controls.
