Metaboards is a metamaterials start-up. The company enables many electronic devices to be powered across large surfaces without the need for alignment or multiple power inputs. This creates more flexible and functional wireless power solutions.
Based in Oxford, UK, Metaboards is a pioneer in metamaterials – the science of creating materials in a certain shapes, sizes or orientations to give it unique properties that would not be found in nature – in this case the ability to wirelessly charge devices. The company is creating new and highly flexible ways to embed wireless charging into surfaces so that multiple items can be charged simultaneously without the need for close alignment or multiple power supplies. This transforms the functionality of wireless charging.
Metaboards’ vision is to create a world where electronic (or mobile) devices can be instantly and effectively powered or charged on any non-metallic surface. Smartphone and tablet users would never need to worry about running out of power again.
Metaboards’ objective is to test the boundaries of what is possible with metamaterials to create market leading products using cutting edge technologies.
