There are a number of settlements in Africa that do not have access to power, which effectively isolates them from the “global village.” As a consequence of this, individuals are unable to use electronic gadgets for amusement and information such as radios and televisions, which are mostly powered by electricity.
The ingenious technology developed under the direction of a Zimbabwean named Maxwell Chikumbutso is just about ready to put an end to this problem once and for all. According to the Herald, he is the creator of Saith Holdings Inc., the company that he used to make headlines for his serial breakthroughs such as electric cars and a helicopter that can operate on many fuels.
Now, the pioneer claims that he has developed a television that can operate without a power cord. According to a report published in the Herald newspaper, Chikumbutso was successful in embedding a wireless power generator on a 55-inch UHD Samsung TV set. This generator makes use of radio frequency (RF) energy, which eliminates the need for power cables, on-grid power, and the size of the TV power supply gadgets.
“There are no cables that are attached to it. It relies on its own power source. When you turn the TV around and look at the back instead of the glossy front, the fact that it does not have any cables connected to it is immediately noticeable, as he explains to the Herald.
This television obtains its power from RF using a component known as an MSED. A piece of electronic hardware that we built here at MSED is used to extract clean energy from radio frequency waves, which is then used to power the TV. That’s the way things are going in the globe right now. Free energy and wireless devices that can power themselves.”
He believes that the timing is perfect for the release of his product because a significant number of homes in Africa do not have access to electricity. The International Energy Agency estimates that over 600 million people do not have access to power.
Chikumbutso makes the observation that it is feasible to enable the vast majority of the impoverished to watch television in the convenience of their own homes by providing them with an RF-powered television set.
According to him, “it is now possible for a large number of people to enjoy watching TV even when they are off the grid because TV sets now come equipped with an RF-powered generator.” “Back in 2003, this was nothing more than a pipe dream for me, but here in 2015, it’s become a reality.” We have been successful in developing a system that can power a variety of electronic devices, including but not limited to televisions, smartphones, laptop computers, and refrigerators.
According to the Herald, the tests demonstrated that the 55-inch UHD Samsung TV set, which contains an MSED and is able to capture RF energy and transform it into clean energy, is able to do so.
According to Chikumbutso, “It produces 500w with 15Amps which means that TV can also power another 2 x 100w light lights to light the house.” “Right now, we are in the process of miniaturizing the MSED so that it may be integrated into smaller devices such as mobile phones, desktops, laptops, and decoders. It will now be contained within those devices. The transition to cordless electronic gadgets is currently underway in technology. That way is the path that we will take. We are going to move this year, and there is nothing that can stop us.”
According to TechZim, Chikumbutso’s idea isn’t original because Samsung introduced a radio-frequency powered TV remote at Consumer Electronics Show 2022. This TV remote also features a small solar panel on the back of the device. However, if what Maxwell Chikumbutso claims to have done is confirmed to be accurate, it may mean that conventional electrical infrastructure will become obsolete because it would be replaced with antenna arrays. The power source for TVs, smartphones, and every other electronic item will be radio frequency.
