It seems like making animated shows for children is just the tip of an iceberg for Disney's operations. Last week, the company revealed its science research department and had developed a prototype living room that can power about ten gadgets, including the charging of a phone, wirelessly.

Disney's Research has test piloted a technology called Quasistatic Cavity Resonance for Ubiquitous Wireless Power Transfer which can power electronics without the need for outlets and wirings. Authors Matthew Chabalko, Mohsen Shahmohammadi and Alanson Sample stated in their research that the technology "can enable purpose-built structures, such as cabinets, rooms, and warehouses, to generate quasistatic magnetic fields that safely deliver kilowatts of power to mobile receivers contained nearly anywhere within."

The researchers have built a prototype room surrounded by aluminum panels from the ceiling to the floor. At the center is a two-inch copper pipe attached to the floor and ceiling for electrical currents to run down the tube.

The electrical currents go down the floor, up to the walls, goes over the roof and back into the tube, looping at 1.3 million times per second, according to Mashable. The circuit has generated a magnetic field in a circular pattern bolt upright to the pole.

Upon tapping in a wire coil, the fields can transfer energy to any equipment or devices. There are in-pipe capacitors that manage the frequency and separating the electric and magnetic fields too so that wireless waves can activate the gadgets.

The researchers said the field does not harm or poses a risk to other devices and humans as long as the person can keep away about 18 inches from the pole. About 1900 watts can be transmitted in the project so that it enables a safe, wireless power.

It is seen that Disney will use the research in its parks, hotels rooms or special places where users can lounge and charge their batteries.
