Fellow Coilers,

  I am very interested in building a small wireless power transmitter. 
Has anyone on the list ever tried to construct one? Can a classic coil 
be converted into one? I am interested in any good sources of 
information or anything that could help.
  I am considering building this for my senior project here at college.  
I want my senior project to have something to do with Tesla, and I 
probably cant use a TC because it has to have a uprocessor and be 
practical and useful for something. I don't know how practical a power 
transmitter is, I don't think that much has been done in this since the 
days of Tesla. Even if one couldn't build one to be efficient, I would 
still be interested, as long as I could build it to be at least 20% 
efficient. Power transmission needn't be more than 50' or so.
  Ideas/suggestions? Or just scrap the whole idea? I would be very 
interested if anyone had some firsthand knowledge about such things.
