The Guardian's report of the same news points out that electric toothbrushes already use this cordless charging technology.
Might I perhaps be the first to point out that a toothbrush might need a few milliwatts for charging, whereas charging an electric car's batteries needs multiple kilowatts - maybe a million times as much as the toothbrush.
There's no way cordless charging scales up like that, but so long as it gets free PR for Toyota or whoever, who cares.
(Yes I know it's Nissan. Just don't want folks to fall for their free PR trick).
