Stable Auto
These guys are working on smart robot arms to connect EV's to charger stands autonomously, allowing autonomous EV's to self charge effectively. Not quite as cool as Elon Musk's tentacle arm charger though

World premiere - TOSA2013 - Flash mobility. Clean city. Smart Bus
EV bus using bus stop flash chargers. Though for flash charging, the power infrastructure for the bus stop and bus are non-trivial for a 15 seconds transfer. You need a buffer system, probably supercaps or flywheels. Interface seems to be a press fit inverted V pantograph rising from the bus, interfacing with a parallel rail DC socket on the underside of the overhead mount, to allow some forward/backward slop in positioning and preventing a DC short by forcing the plug point to correct skew on insertion.

Some sort of new charger, uses tricks internally to convert AC to DC at higher efficiency in a smaller package. Uses some sort of frequency multiplier to reduce the size of inductors and capacitors (some kind of VHF switching inverter?), and using air core inductors and transformers can cut down on size and weight.

Interesting take on portable campfire thermoelectric generators. Uses a solid blade and a silicone cup holding user provided water as a heatsink, rather than more typical finned air heatsinks, plus the blade design allows sticking it into any kind of fire in theory.

ABB demonstrates technology to power flash charging electric bus in 15 seconds
Fast charge systems have been proposed in the past for pseudo-trolleybuses and trolleybuses with limited off-route capability via battery. With current PHEV and EV bus types, this might have legs, as it avoids trolleybus electric line infrastructure, and in many places, people expect enclosed bus stops so the charger infrastructure can be built into the stop more easily.. Though from an installation and operations standpoint, a wireless charge pad embedded in the road in front of stop seems potentially more usable. The real problem is the fast charge itself, as most batteries can't accept power that fast, so you are forced to move into supercapacitor type systems, or perhaps electric flywheels.

Has some sort of mechanical docking mechanism built into the pocket/sleeve inside to connect and charge your phone (apparently device specific so you have to buy the right purse). The purse bag itself charges its battery via inductive charging (Qi?) it seems.

Alta Devices - Welcome
Apparently, by mimicking LED design concepts and other tricks, like increasing the reflectivity of the backing mirror, these guys have created a single junction PV cell that broke the 26% barrier. They apparently want to move into low volume initial manufacturing to produce iPad recharge cover panels, as that is a good enough demo of manufacturing methods, and is a servicable niche that can get them early revenue during the solar industry downturn.

Interesting idea here. A medium sized trailer for pure EV's, featuring conventional cargo area, a battery bed to store energy, a small diesel generator, electric motor to power the trailer axle (so the EV doesn't feel the weight of the trailer), and power transfer to keep the host EV' batteries topped up (or direct feeding the EV's motors if the host's controller is intelligent enough) with the potential to do a normal charge of the EV when parked. Since you probably need the cargo capacity if you are going on a long trip, this actually makes some sense. Plus this covers the EV owner's fear of being stranded from charging infrastructure, without having to carry a generator engine onboard all the time like a normal hybrid EV.

Basically an ultrasonic spot beam transducer setup, firing a focused beam of ultrasound towards the receiver, which I assume is just a tweaked piezoelectric microphone setup, to receive acoustic energy and convert that to electricity. Claim 8V transferable (what is the wattage?) and below OHSA sound limits. If the receiver and transmitter use active guidance, you might be able to use a phased array for the transmitter.

Just this side of crazy enough to work...
