So collects and redirects NIR to the pane edge,where it can be converted to other wavelengths (regular IR) for a solar power generator to consume. Does near infrared now, seems possible to also to UV as well.

Interesting research into using small magnetic fields for formation flight, plus a secondary thing to try wireless power transmission to recharge mag field formation fliers.

NFMR is interesting, but will this use the Qi protocol for negotiating the power levels? Plus, if you go this far, might as well do wireless USB since that is the same approximate range.

This seems to have applications where one of the two things you want to see in focus is a relatively known distance from the lens/eye (in this case the forward blade of an iron sight). I wonder if this has any applications for conventional cameras as a simultaneous multifocal lens?
