cordless electricity - tesla vindicated?

http://edition.cnn.com/2009/TECH/09/02/wireless.electricity/index.html

Ultimately, Giler's group from MIT wants to combine the best of both worlds: large amounts of power sent over long distances.

Their technology is called "magnetically coupled resonance," and it basically sends a magnetic field through the air at a specific frequency that an an enabled phone or TV can pick up and turn back into electricity. It works kind of like sound. Think about how an opera singer can break a wine glass if he sings at just the right frequency.

Adding the technology to cell phones, mp3 players and other devices should not increase their cost much, he said.


I wonder if the modulated magnetic field would interfere with devices like speakers or MRI machines?
