Very cool. Tesla did stuff like this a hundred years ago though. :P

Yes, but Tesla didn't power a TV and an iPhone on-stage with it. :p (Although I'm pretty sure Intel powered a lightbulb with it on-stage a year or two back.)

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't that how my toothbrush charges? - Not at 2m distance, but it's done with no contact.
