Video: Intel researcher pulling power from the sky

Here’s a video of Intel researcher Joshua Smith “harvesting” electricity from digital TV broadcasts, as described in Monday’s column.

He’s showing the setup – a standard TV antenna and kitchen thermometer – on the deck at Intel’s lab near the University of Washington, where we took a photo for the paper.

Lots of additional information is here at Smith’s Web site.

(A reader also wrote to say I should have given a nod to Nikola Tesla ….)
