Directed EM energy beams have been around since the 60’s at least. To my knowledge gamma, x-ray and normal light all have been used in high energy medium and low energy transmission.
The technology associated with the medium and high energy spectrum has been weaponized and is classified in most places. I am surprised about NZ. Note how carefully the item avoids any mention of how the energy occurs for fear of immediate necessity for classification.

This could be closer to scam than to reality. No one really knows the loss-rate of wireless for high power uses or the dangers involved. There is not much reason to suspect that there is a breakthrough here nor that this makes either scientific or economic sense, other than the mention of Tesla, but since they apparently are not using Tesla as a reference - where is their data?

This is important. No doubt everyone other than auto mechanics and people who like the hear the vroom-vroom would like to switch to electric cars. The problem is there doesn't seem to be enough copper wire to carry all the current required to charge all the batteries in all the electric cars. Last time I did some rough figuring, it seemed as if the maximum number of electric cars would be about 10% of all vehicles before the power grid was over taxed. Look at what happens when there are brown-outs on hot days. Those air conditioners don't draw anywhere near the current required to charge a 100% electric car fleet. Wireless power transmission, if really workable, would solve this problem. Autos themselves could be set up to receive the power transmission, thereby eliminating the requirement for such large batteries.
