Wireless charging for phones is a reality. Researchers are working on wireless charging while cars are in motion, but this work needs to be accelerated. This is essentially a wireless version of a toy slot car track.
I would love to own an electric car, but like many other people I live in a place with long highway drives. If the car could be wirelessly charged on major highways it would extend the range and usefulness of an electric car. Most of the in-town driving would use batteries, and yet the car could cross the country on major highways with wireless charging.
