New Investments in Two Technology Companies via KDDI Open Innovation Fund

1. "Cota"

Cota is a wireless power charging technology developed by Ossia. It is consisted by transmitter and receiver. One transmitter has a 10 Meters coverage of wireless charging into multiple devices which integrated the receiver. Even if the recipient device is moving in the room, Cota can keep charging to it by wall reflection. One charger can charge many devices in a room wherever they are placed, no need to consider placement over a pad or a specific locations like other technologies. Ossia envisions a world where all of these battery-powered devices never require being plugged into the wall, and batteries won't ever need to be replaced.
