Xiaomi earlier today showed off its remote charging technology called ‘Mi Air Charging Technology' that doesn't require any charging cable or pad. Another company has now demonstrated wireless over-the-air charging in a hands-on video.

Motorola has posted a video on Weibo (via XDA Developers) demonstrating its wireless charging technology. The remote charging station is called “Motorola One Hyper” and it's placed 80cm and 100cm away from two smartphones that are both the Motorola Edge. Both the smartphones are placed in front of the charging station at their specified locations.
