In an effort to make recharging you gadgets easy and unobtrusive, researches have found a way to make a small sheet of special material into a charger that uses electromagnetic induction.  The sheet is made of copper and pentacene, and is tiny, but any device placed on it with a special receiving circuit starts getting charged.  Slashdot has a link to the original story.

"Research scientists at the University of Tokyo have come up with a unique sheet-like material that can transmit

electrical energy over a large area to nearby devices without the need for direct contact, so it can be made into a

tablecloth or wallpaper and your appliance can be anywhere on a surface to get charged. The system uses organic molecules

as transistors, microelectromechanical switches, and miniature copper coils to transmit energy using electromagnetic

induction."
