Most of us might think the idea of a self-charging cell phone sounds like something out of science fiction. Yet as you can see here, Nokia has found a way to overcome the problem of the dying cell phone and from the sounds of it, I think it might have a workable solution.

Imagine Nokia phone harnessing nearby transmitters for wireless charging. Whether it be a standalone unit that you have in the home or something like what you might see with RFID type stuff where the phone is charging as you pass by them, at the end of the day is comes down to just how indefinitely it can run without plugging into the charger sticking out of your wall.

Some have pointed out that Tesla came up with much of this stuff over a century ago, but it seems like now more than ever it will be this kind of technology in the mobile world that redefines where wireless power is headed.
