Actually the idea of wireless charging is not only about how you can recharge your gadgets without wires but also the possibility to do it remotely.

If previously Chun T. Rim have come up with a wireless charging technique that can emit power from 15 feet then Ossia with Cota has gone further as far as 40 feet away.

Cota consist of embeddable charger and a transmitter. You need to embed the charger on your gadget which will sends a low-intensity signal to the transmitter to pick up the power wirelessly.

Cota will sends the power over a similar band used by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. So obstructions like humans and walls will not hold up the recharging process.

Not only able to recharge devices from distance, Costa with its special software also able to detect and send the energy to a device that need to be recharged. Enjoy the video bellow to see it in action:

Impressive enough right?

Google Glass itself already can support your wildest imagination and now with the support of Google Draw you can even do more things.

Google Draw is a multifunctional stylus pen that let you to paint anything in your virtual reality imagination. It also able to run voice search for important landmarks, or search for your desired terms.

The stylus also allow you to control the flow of virtual color and adjust the size of strokes of the sketch that you made.

This stylus pen is not an official project by Google, without Google taking it seriously, I think this project will never come into our reality. Except, Jorge is releasing the “Google” word and leave it to the interested investors.
