RCA Airnergy - Snake Oil or Not?

Ben Newman (53813) writes "Of all the tech that's come out of CES this week, nothing has gotten the blogosphere more excited then the RCA Airnergy. A lot of people love the thought of an ever recharging cell phone, and the Airnergy promises to constantly charge its internal battery through 2.4 ghz wireless signals. Neat Idea, but as some commeneters have pointed out the energy isn't there to make this work. Plus don't let the RCA brand fool you into thinking this must be from a legitimate company. RCA hasn't existed as anything more then a licensed brand name for a couple of decades. So what do Slashdoters think? Is this the real deal or simply 21st century hokum?"

...to charge a battery, then hand me my tin-foil helmet and jock-strap!
