Computerworld – A startup on Tuesday unveiled technology that it claims can simultaneously charge multiple devices in a house, even through walls and around corners, by using the same radio spectrum as other wireless standards, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

“You don’t have to put [the charging] device in every room. You just put it into one room in your house and it will power all your devices,” said Hatem Zeine, founder of Ossia, developer of the technology. “It’s like your Wi-Fi signal. If you can get a Wi-Fi signal, you’ll be able to get power.”

After six years of development, Ossia today unwrapped the new Cota wireless charging technology, which it says will be available to consumers and enterprises by 2015.

Zeine, demonstrated a prototype of the charging system at the TechCrunch Disrupt technology conference in San Francisco this week.
