How bout adding individual tread mills to the drivers stand with some sort of generator tied to each mill. The faster you run the more watts are generated and sent to your S.P. 2.4Ghz heart monitoring device

Just throwing this here as I think King-Golden (Speed Passion) might be working on one as well.

I think you guys are missing the idea behind this technology. This unit would replace the battery in your car.

The idea is not that there would be a centralized power source at the track and everyone could run indefinitely.

I think the way it works is that you would need the device pictured in the car and a "charging pad". The power source would get wired to you speedo. To charge the car, all you would do is place it on the pad and it would charge wirelessly, pull if off when you are ready to race. This would be "green" because you would not need more then one battery and there would be less waste from it.

IDK, the whole good for the environment thing seems like BS to me, but the technology and concept are fascinating. If they can pull this office, I'll be really impressed.

If you're right (you're not) how do you reckon they store the power in such a small device. Even a 3000mah 7.4v Lipo is twice the size of the total unit. IF this thing is real, it must conitnously draw a current from an external tranmitter during a race. It clearly doesn't have the capability to store enough energy for a complete 5 minute run.

As we seen on this photo from TITC it's just a concept kind, which don't work yet, there's no cable linked on it.
I don't think this kind of technology will work properly on RC car, instead on small power electronic hardware with big power transmission source. Actual mankind of technology should be very harmful and danger if could put working on a powerful kinds, like a RC car, even running so slow as a turtle. So i don't think it will sell in 2009 or further moments.

according to the video, u need 4 power transmitters at each corner of the track. 100ft coverage. ( i can't quite clearly hear if he said 8 or 100. 8 and 100 sounds very similar in Cantonese.) they have technical difficulities of reaching further. 10 cars can be run at the same time.

I sure as hell wouldn't want to be marshaling under one of those. The amount of energy they would need to push out to supply enough power for 10 cars.... Sorry, not big into cancer even if a link isn't proven.

I'm sure we will see this technology on the RC car, but not so soon or by Speed Passion first.

this kind of technology need tons of time and fund to hit mess production, therer is no RC company on earth can afford that kind of money, especialy not the Speed Passion.

just like 2.4Mhz or lipo, it have to become so popular/mess production before get adopted to the RC market.

I can see the big battery/charger companies buying out SP or anyone coming out with such a product, similar to the big oil companies did with the electric/hydrogen/solar concept cars.

Any updates to this?

On the BBC here in the UK tonight, there was a show similar to Mythbusters, but where they construct various devices to prove/disprove theories. One was wireless power, and unfortunately I wasn't paying enough attention to it...but they managed to make a Lama V3 RC helicopter run from the power from a 1000W microwave oven. It didn't fly too well as it was plugged into the power receiver basestation, and was flown by a kid, but the theory about wireless power worked.
