How many of us have dreamed of a future without cords and outlets? How many have hoped for ubiquitous wireless power that makes connected independence a reality? Or just wished for a workspace or home office that doesn’t look like a hairy monster, cluttered by cords and an accident waiting to happen. And the problem is only going to get worse, because according to many sources (see the Infographic below for sources), the rise of “internet connected devices” that require power, will grow to epic proportion. Imagine just the devices in the home office alone competing for the power bar?! Well, a solution has arrived and not a moment too soon!

Bellevue, Washington based Ossia has made the seemingly impossible a very real and viable technology, becoming the first company to develop a safe, efficient and viable wireless power solution. Cota™, Ossia’s patented smart antenna technology, enables wireless charging of smartphones, wearables, remote controls, smoke alarms, electric toothbrushes, AA batteries, and more—without wires, plugs or charging pads. A revolutionary idea that has been coming together for nearly a decade, Ossia uses technology similar to Wi-Fi to deliver wireless power by safely targeting energy to devices at a distance.

To all those who heard about it, Cota seemed too good to be true… but as Jabil quickly learned – it wasn’t! Ossia partnered with Jabil, and put our specialized product design, engineering, and manufacturing expertise to work for Ossia. The CTO had this to say:

“Having all these cutting-edge technologies in one place shows that when it comes to innovation, Jabil leaves nothing on the table. The Blue Sky Center is a fantastic example of how the latest advancements interact and work together to create next-generation products.” – Hatem Zeine, Founder, CTO and Chairman, Ossia.

Now, let’s shift gears for a minute, and imagine this technology working for you! You are an innovator (whether you are part of a large R&D team within a global enterprise or in one of those cool tech start-ups), and you are trying to deliver a solution that needs power; Connected home and Consumer products, Connected Healthcare, like prosthesis or home care devices, Connected Factory floors, etc. but can’t or don’t want wires everywhere?! Can you imagine your differentiation and the possibilities?

We can! And we can even help you take this technology and design and develop those possibilities at RadiusJabil’s Innovation & Development consultancy.
