I’m charging my toothbrush with wireless power over distance — and it’s a trip | Wired

“For the past month or so, my electric toothbrush has been charging wirelessly, but not the way you think. My toothbrush charger is not plugged into an outlet. There are no wires or cables. The charging cradle can sit anywhere on the bathroom counter and continue to charge my toothbrush. This is because I am beta testing a prototype from Wi-Charge, an Israeli company that employs infrared technology to deliver wireless power across distances of up to 30 feet.”

“We’ve already somehow reached the point in the year where it’s acceptable to reflect back on it, and so TIME magazine recently released its ‘Best Inventions of 2023’ list. The collection is massive, covering 200 different innovations in categories such as transportation and consumer electronics, but you know the topic we’re most interested in is the food. Lots of interesting foods, appliances, and other culinary marvels were released this year, and TIME explores how each one broke new ground.”

The answer: No, but here are a few of the notable celebrations

The answer: No, but here are a few of the notable celebrations

According to the World Population Review website: “In many countries, Halloween has increased substantially in popularity within the last 30 years. For example, the holiday is catching on in Australia, where houses hang an orange balloon outside to signal they have lollipops for trick-or-treaters. Halloween is also gaining traction in France, Greece, Poland, Sweden, Italy, and other countries. In many countries, Halloween has been met with initial resistance from people who regard it as either an overly commercialized holiday or an American holiday infringing upon local customs (or both). However, in many cases, that resistance wanes over time as new generations find ways to both honor existing traditions and incorporate new ones.”
