Education is first priority for Alexandre Despallieres and Xin Wei, in discussion for a daily TV segment, with short topics to demonstrate how very simple action could considerably lower your electric expenses. Recently at Radio France Internationale, Xin Wei proved how our home appliances were draining electricity even when we don’t use any of them. This must stop, and the best advice remain to unplug. For them, French people are spending more than 2 billion of Euros in electric waste every year, this is simply not acceptable they both declared. We asked if RF energy Harvesting would work everywhere or if this solution is only possible in big cities, where there are plenty of Wi-Fi Spots and an abundance of mobile phone. Also what pushed the two masterminds that leads the green revolution with K3OPS to push the boundary of the technology.

Xin Wei answered: “In some environment, where ambient Radio frequencies are too weak, our nodes transmitters power an array of distant sensors. Each of them communicate back wirelessly delivering the sufficient amount of energy. Our devices embedded read-and-write non-volatile memory RFID transponders for remote distributed sensors as well as data loggers. Local Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide (SPIO) authorizes a low-power micro configuring log, transmitting data back to the receiver at a very low consumption. Simple reflectors multiply the effective surface area to present more concentrated energy to the actual pickup points. Picture a low resolution finite element parabolic dish as approach defines a clear line of sight to a wireless energy transmission source. Yes, it does work everywhere, we just use different technics depending of the need. But as you know, there will be a transition period and first is to educate, we all need to become more responsible, we need to stop using dangerous batteries that turn into flame. To recycle the energy derived from the ambient electromagnetic radiation field to power all your wearable devices with an ecological endless supply of green energy is now an evidence.”

“We have pushed the boundaries of technology through resonant energy transfer because we needed to come with solutions and not raising electromagnetic radiation as the emerging health problem of the 21st century. The 90’s were awash with horror stories of holes in the ozone layer, acid rain, melting icecaps and the greenhouse effect. There was even a popular animated cartoon ‘Captain Planet’ where the villains were big bad polluters. While the Democrats paid lip service to environmental issues, the Republicans dismissed them and although it was bandied between them, it paled next to more immediate concerns like war, social security and the national debt. But as evidenced by the craziness over the sold out ‘I am not a plastic bag’ canvas tote designed for Whole Foods, the growing popularity of hybrid vehicles and concerns about reducing our carbon footprint suddenly environmentalism is sexy, trendy and hip. Time to change, we created K3OPS, a system as an answer to cope with electromagnetic pollution issues.” Said Alexandre Despallieres.
